It truly is the most wonderful time of the year! We have had winners come in to Lottery headquarters left and right, and today was no exception. Mark Foster from Billings claimed a $250,000 Scratch prize he won while playing "$250,000 Instant Jackpot" with a ticket purchased at Cono Mart Super Stores, 1240 S. 27th St.; Billings.

Mark purchased two Montana Millionaire tickets and three $250,000 Instant Jackpot tickets on Wednesday night, but he was too tired to scratch them when he got home. He woke up at 4 A.M. and just had a feeling that he should scratch his tickets. Low and behold, his last ticket was a $250,000 winner!

Mark was in such disbelief after scratching his winning ticket that he woke up his roommate and had him double check the ticket. Mark plans on buying a home with his winnings and putting the rest towards his retirement.

"$250,000 Instant Jackpot" debuted October 7, 2013 with top prizes up to $250,000.

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.

With the holidays upon us, now is the perfect time to win some extra cash, and if you were to ask Elijah Hay from Noxon he would tell you that he couldn't agree more. Elijah came in to Lottery headquarters in Helena and claimed a $12,000 Scratch prize he won while playing "Deluxe Super Hot 7's" with a ticket purchased at Aitken's Quick Stop, 1402 Hwy 200.; Noxon.

Elijah brought several friends with him when he claimed his prize and stated that, even though he had all of them double check his ticket, he still couldn't believe he won until we verified it in our office.

Elijah usually plays Scratch tickets and wanted to spread the word that "he believes scratching Scratch tickets with a penny is good luck and that all players should try it". Elijah plans on paying off some debt with his winnings and said that this windfall of money could not have come at a better time!

"Deluxe Super Hot 7's" debuted March 12, 2014 with top prizes up to $12,000.
