Golden Nugget Second Chance Drawing Near

March 5, 2014 – In just over two weeks, the Montana Lottery will name the winner of a luxurious, all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas’ Golden Nugget hotel and casino. The Golden Nugget second chance drawing will be held Friday, March 21, and one winner will be chosen to win the grand prize.  The all-expenses trip includes ground transportation to and round-trip airfare for two. Once the winner and their guest have landed in Las Vegas and made it to the Golden Nugget, they’ll check into one of the hotel’s luxurious, single-bedroom parlor suites. The winner will receive a $1,700 in Landry’s gift cards, which can be used for food, drinks, shopping and even at the spa.  Along with the gift cards to pay for some pampering during the trip, the winner will also receive a check for $1,000, because who goes to Vegas without a little spending money? The grand prize trip lasts three days, plenty of time to get out of the cold and enjoy Las Vegas. For a chance at the Golden Nugget grand prize, players will need to enter non-winning $25,000 Gold Golden Nugget scratch-off tickets into the promotion through the Montana Lottery’s Players Club Registering for the Players Club is simple, quick and completely free, and gives players access to all of the great second chance promotions and bonus play opportunities the Lottery has to offer.

Montana Millionaire Winner Claims Prize

Jan. 15, 2015 – Montana’s newest millionaire came forward Tuesday to claim the top prize from the Montana Millionaire Raffle.  Russell Miller, from Kalispell, had the lucky ticket that beat 1 in 130,000 odds to net him the $1 million prize. Miller told Lottery officials that he only plays occasionally, but bought two tickets for this year’s Montana Millionaire, the first of which was worth the $1 million. He said that he saw the winning numbers in the newspaper and checked his tickets against the ones in print, then to be sure his “eyes weren’t playing tricks,” he had his wife double check. That was just three days after the drawing, and since then Miller has been “following [the] game plan” that he’s dreamed of in the past. “I’ve been thinking about winning something more than five or ten dollars, and thought in my mind over and over how I would initially handle it,” he said. A part of that plan includes donating some of the windfall to charity, “organizations we’ve given to in the past,”  Miller said. As for the rest of the money, he didn’t tell the Lottery he had any specific plans, simply saying “we won’t be sitting on it.” Along with Miller’s $1 million top prize, the Montana Millionaire drawing also awarded two $100,000 prizes and three $10,000 prizes. Two of the three $10,000 prizes have yet to be claimed; to check the winning numbers, visit the Montana Millionaire...

Montana Millionaire Winner Still a Mystery

Jan. 8, 2014 – A full week has gone by since the Montana Lottery announced the winning raffle numbers chosen in the Montana Millionaire drawing, and there is no sign of Montana’s newest millionaire. The Lottery announced New Year’s Eve that the winning ticket was sold at Mike’s Conoco in Columbia Falls, but, according to local news outlet KTVQ, neither the lottery or Mike’s Conoco has been contacted by the big winner. The winner has six months to collect his or her $1 million prize.  The winning raffle number was 090907. Along with the $1 million top prize, this year’s Montana Millionaire also awarded five runner-up prizes, two of which have already been claimed. One of two winners of a $100,000 second prize, Helen Wortham from Billings, claimed her prize last Thursday.  Helen, her son Sheldon and a family friend in Tennessee split the cost of tickets and will split the winnings evenly as well. As an added bonus, the trio even scored one of the $500 instant prizes available with this year’s Montana Millionaire tickets. One out of three $10,000 winners has also claimed his prize.  Helena resident Thomas Judge bought his $10,000 winning ticket at a 3G’s convenience store in Billings, and collected his prize Tuesday. Four prizes – the $1 million grand prize, a $100,000 second prize, and two $10,000 prizes – have yet to be claimed.  To see the winning raffle numbers and the retail locations where each ticket was sold, check the Montana Lottery’s Montana Millionaire winning numbers...
