Darlene Smith of Helena is the fourth person to win $5,000 from The Montana Lottery’s newest game, Lucky for Life™ since it went on sale January 27, 2015. Darlene purchased her ticket for the March 26 drawing at Albertsons, 3151 N. Montana Ave.; Helena and she wasted no time coming to claim her prize.

Darlene called Lottery headquarters this morning to listen to the recording of the winning numbers and found out she had matched four numbers and the Lucky Ball. Unsure of how much that combination of numbers was worth, she stopped by Lottery headquarters to check her ticket. When she found out her ticket was worth $5,000 she was in total shock.

Darlene is a retired VA employee and her husband is retired military. Darlene stated “she doesn’t play Lottery often but on a whim decided to buy some Lucky for Life tickets.” However, the couple is not new to winning it big. Darlene’s husband won $250,000 playing a Lotto game several years ago.

Darlene stated that “she is planning on tucking away her winnings until she can think of something fun she would like to buy or a fun trip she would like to take.”

Lucky for Life is the newest draw game product introduced by the Montana Lottery since Mega Millions was introduced in 2010. Lucky for Life boasts a top prize of $1,000 a day for life, payable as an annuity or lump sum and a secondary prize of $25,000 a year for life, payable as an annuity or lump sum.

The Montana Lottery was created by referendum in 1986. Since then, it has paid over $483 million in prizes and returned approximately $217 million to the State of Montana.
