HELENA - Samantha Sipp-Angst changed her Lottery routine and her luck when she bought her winning ticket. Samantha won a $15,000 prize with a "$300,000 Jackpot" Scratch ticket purchased at the PS Mini Mart at 930 N. Russell Avenue in Missoula.

Samantha's husband works at PS Mini Mart and she normally buys only $1 Scratch tickets. She chose for the first time to buy a $20 ticket because the prizes were so much larger. When she scratched the ticket, she thought, "This has got to be fake." But she was quickly assured her ticket was genuine.

Samantha knows exactly what she's going to do with her winnings. She will finish paying off her trailer, and become a home owner at age 21. She was very pleased this win will allow her to own her own house.

The Montana Lottery was created by referendum in 1986. Since then, it has paid over $497 million in prizes and returned approximately $224 million to the State of Montana.

HELENA - Robert Wilson had a lot of success on his annual hunting trip to Boulder. Robert won a $25,000 prize with a “$500,000 Bankroll” Scratch ticket purchased at the Cenex Zip Trip at 2801 Harrison Avenue in Butte.

Robert was preparing for a week of elk hunting in Boulder when he stopped for supplies and a "$500,000 Bankroll" ticket. He scratched his ticket before hunting and knew he'd won, but decided to hunt first and cash in his ticket later. He kept the ticket in his hunting duffel for safekeeping.

Robert has plans to get a new truck with his winnings, and pick up a few Montana Millionaire tickets as well. As he was leaving, Robert said this win put a big smile on his face.
