Linda Lubick of Butte claimed a $50,000 Scratch top prize while playing "Jokers Wild" with a ticket purchased at Zip Trip, 2801 Harrison Ave.; Butte.

This was Linda's first big Lottery win. She was in such disbelief when she found out she won that she had to verify the winning ticket with her husband. Together they called their neighbor who lives two doors down. Their neighbor won a $50,000 top scratch prize last year, which he purchased at the very same Zip Trip in Butte. Their neighbor gave them information on how to claim their winnings.

Linda advises other players "double check your numbers!" Linda does not have any definite plans for her winnings, stating "she is still in shock."

"Jokers Wild" debuted January 29, 2014 with top prizes up to $50,000. There is still one top prize remaining as well as many other prizes in the game.

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.

Jamie Janicke of Great Falls claimed a $12,000 Scratch top prize while playing "Sweet Cash" with a ticket purchased at Loaf N' Jug, 900 First Ave.; Great Falls.

Jamie is a stay at home mom and got a nice surprise this week. She found out Sunday she had a winner over the holiday weekend. She had to have her husband take the winning ticket back to Loaf N' Jug to confirm it was a winner because she was in shock and disbelief. "It is still surreal," she said. She had to wait an extra day to claim her prize since Lottery headquarters was closed on Monday for Memorial Day. The win is still sinking in!

This is her first big Lottery win. She typically plays Scratch games and had advice to other players saying, "It it (winning) is meant to be, it will be." Jamie plans to use her winnings to pay off some bills and have a fun summer!

Jody is originally from Kalispell. She works at First Interstate Bank in Lolo and was happy to call in and ask for time off today to come claim her prize.

Jody discovered her winning ticket Saturday evening when she checked her ticket online. She immediately started screaming for her husband, who came over to verify the numbers. Jody usually plays Montana Cash, Powerball and Wild Card, which also had a Montana jackpot winner this Saturday.

Jody plans on buying a new car and taking a trip to California with her winnings. When asked if she has any advice for players she said to stick with it because "winners really do happen."
