The official Roster of professional football players and teams will be updated once per week every Tuesday morning. The update will remove any injured players and will reflect any traded players. Any Montana Sports Action retailer may provide you with a report of the Roster updates. You may also access the complete Roster via an MP terminal or by clicking the "Roster" tab above.


Fantasy Football may be played only at a Montana Sports Action retailer. There are two ways to play: by using a self-service MP terminal or by using the ePlayslip app on your mobile device.

Either way, create your fantasy team by selecting five eligible players and a defensive unit from the official Roster. Choose a Quarterback, Running Back, Wide Receiver, Tight End, Kicker, and Defensive Unit. The first five positions (QB, RB, WR, TE, and K) are represented with four-digit numbers. The first two numbers represent the player's team, and the second two numbers represent the player's jersey number. The Defensive Unit is only two numbers, which identify the team.

If you're using an MP terminal, touch the MONTANA SPORTS ACTION button, followed by FANTASY FOOTBALL, and follow the on-screen instructions to build your team.

Short on time? In addition to choosing your team, you may also place a Quick Pick wager, for which the terminal chooses your team for you. Quick Picks may include any player from the Roster, even if the player doesn't play any games that week. No points will be awarded to those players.

After you build a team, choose an amount to wager - $5, $10, $20, $50, or $100. The amount you wager will determine the number of shares of prize money you will receive if you win.

After the week's games are complete, points will be awarded to players and defensive units based on their performance to determine the amount of points your fantasy team earned. If your team earns one of the three highest point totals for the week, you win according to the prize pool distribution outlined below.

For more information on using ePlayslip, click here.


For each week of the professional football season, Fantasy Football wagers may be placed beginning Tuesday morning. Wagers placed at least 10 minutes before the first scheduled game of the week will be eligible to receive points from all selected players who play during that week.

Wagers may continue to be placed until 10 minutes before the last scheduled game of the week, usually the Monday night game, but players who already played will no longer be available to choose.

For example: Say Green Bay plays Chicago Thursday night, and you place a wager Sunday morning. Players from Green Bay and Chicago will no longer be available to choose because they've already played for the week.

Wagers may only be placed for the current week's games. Tickets may only be purchased for the current week of play.

Fantasy Football may be played through the post-season, excluding the championship game. The Roster for each week of post-season play will continue to be available every Tuesday morning.


Points will be awarded according to the table below. Please note the points calculation includes negative points. The calculation includes fractions of points to minimize ties. The Montana Lottery's Fantasy Football scoring may vary from other fantasy football games.

Each week, the total prize pool (74% of ticket sales for the week) will be divided into first, second, and third prizes - 50% for first prize, 30% for second prize, and 20% for third prize.

Any tickets with the highest point total for the week will win first prize, and so on for tickets with the second and third highest point totals.

In the event of multiple tickets with the same point totals, the prize level will be split depending on the number of shares each player chose. For example: imagine first prize is $2,000, and two tickets each with 88 points both win first prize. If one player chose four shares (a $20 ticket) while another player chose one share (a $5 ticket), the first player would win $1,600 (4/5 of $2,000) and the second player would win $400 (1/5 of $2,000).


Fantasy Football tickets may only be purchased and redeemed at Montana Sports Action retailers. Winning tickets for the prior week may be paid after the Montana Lottery issues the official results Tuesday morning. Tickets up to $599.99 may be redeemed at any Montana Sports Action retailer. Tickets winning $600 or more must be claimed in person at Montana Lottery Headquarters, 2525 North Montana Ave., Helena. Alternatively, tickets may be mailed to:

Montana Lottery
PO Box 6073
Helena, Montana 59604-6073

Either way, please sign your ticket and complete a Montana Lottery claim form. The Lottery recommends using Certified Mail to send your tickets by mail.

NOTE: Once a ticket is printed, it cannot be canceled. Please ensure your playslip or MP terminal screen is correct before printing the ticket.
