Helena resident claims Montana Millionaire jackpot

INDEPENDENT RECORD

A Helena resident claimed a $1 million jackpot last week in the 2022 Montana Millionaire game, the Montana Lottery announced. 

The Helena resident, who declined to be identified publicly, purchased the winning ticket at Town Pump on 10th Avenue South in Great Falls and claimed the $1 million prize on Dec. 27. 

Montana Millionaire is offered once a year and had two $1 million prizes in 2022. The other $1 million winning ticket was sold in Butte and has not yet been redeemed. 

Someone in Maryland won the $731.1 million lottery. PennyGem’s Elizabeth Keatinge tells us what to do if you experience a financial windfall.

The 280,000 Montana Millionaire tickets went on sale for $20 each at 5:30 a.m. Nov. 1 at 834 outlets statewide and sold out by 10:30 a.m. Nov. 2. 

It took about six days for the tickets to sell out in 2021 and nearly two months for them to sell out at one time, Montana Lottery staff said. 

The $1 million prize redeemed last week was among the $1,048,393 in high-tier prizes awarded by the Montana Lottery since Dec. 27. A high-tier prize is any prize of $600 or more.
