GeoComply Goes Live in Montana

GeoComply, top supplier of geolocation compliance products and services, has established its PinPoint on-premise solution in Montana, supporting the Montana Lottery and Intralot’s Sports Bet Montana app.

The initial rollout will include up to 145 taverns in the Big Sky State, with an expected 2,000 licensed premises going live in 2020.

In Montana, statewide online sports betting is not allowed under current legislation, and bets may only be placed from within the physical space of a licensed facility. PinPoint enables players to use the Sports Bet Montana app on their personal mobile devices while they’re on-premise, remaining compliant with state and federal laws.

PinPoint utilizes GeoComply’s specially-designed Bluetooth beacons, installed inside the facility, along with industry-standard geolocation compliance software to ensure that players are on-premise.

PinPoint has been live at the Pearl River Resort in Mississippi since 2019. In that implementation, PinPoint combines with IGT’s PlaySports platform and mobile app to effectively transform the entire Pearl River property into an online sportsbook, allowing guests to place bets from virtually anywhere, including their hotel rooms.
