Scratch fever is catching! We had another big Scratch winner come to Lottery headquarters today to claim their prize. Joseph Obenhoff of Butte claimed his $10,000 Scratch prize that he won while playing "$250,000 Instant Jackpot" with a ticket purchased at Town Pump, 531 S Montana.; Butte.

Joseph had purchased his winning Scratch ticket a month ago. He had placed it in his briefcase and forgot all about it. While waiting for his son today he stumbled upon the ticket and decided to scratch it while he waited. To his surprise, he found out that he had been carrying around a $10,000 ticket in his briefcase for a month!

Joseph and his son drove directly to Helena when they realized they had won. Joseph plans on using his winnings to pay some bills but stated that "he will do at least one fun thing with his winnings."

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.

Imagine being at work and buying a Scratch ticket on a break. Now imagine scratching that ticket and realizing you had won $175,000. Would you leave work immediately or would you finish out your shift while in shock? For Alan Hall of Great Falls, the decision was easy. As soon as he found out he had won $175,000 playing the Monopoly Scratch game with a ticket purchased at Loaf ‘N Jug, 900 First Ave N.; Great Falls, he left work and drove straight to Lottery headquarters in Helena.

Alan loves to buy Scratch tickets and stated that “this is his biggest win.” Alan only had to scratch off one spot on the ticket to realize that he won the grand prize. He stood in shock, staring at the ticket for a long time until the shock wore off and excitement set in.

Alan, a roofing contractor, plans on using his winning to purchase a small home in Great Falls.

“Monopoly” debuted July 16, 2014 with top prizes up to $175,000.
