Lacy Strohmeyer is ringing in the new year with an extra $50,000 claimed from the December 20 Powerball drawing. The ticket was purchased at Reynolds Market, Lake City Shopping Center; Baker.

Lacy, having found out she won right after the drawing, had some time to think about how to spend her winnings. She plans to use most of the winnings to buy a house. Lacy's win is even sweeter because she chose to pay the extra $1 for the Power Play option, which multiplies any non-jackpot wins up to 5X. This changed her ticket from a $10,000 win to a $50,000 win.

Although this is Lacy's first big Lottery win, she enjoys playing Montana Lottery games regularly. She advises other players that "it can happen!" Powerball drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday night with a current jackpot of $120,000,000!

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.

Julie Hegel of Great Falls claimed the $10,000 Montana Millionaire prize from the December 19 Pre-Millionaire Drawing. The ticket was purchased at Peres Food Basket, 2700 Second Ave. N.; Great Falls.

Julie said she was at an office Christmas party when a co-worker told her the winning ticket was sold at Peres Food Basket. Her husband checked her ticket the next day which left him running back and forth, upstairs and downstairs, between Julie and the ticket to verify the winning number.

Julie enjoys playing the Lottery games weekly and is happy to have her first big win be a Montana Millionaire win. Our 2014 Montana Millionaire drawing for the $1 million grand prize, two $100,000 prizes and three $10,000 prizes will be held Tuesday, December 30 at 10AM!

It has been a long wait, but today we finally got to meet our Montana Cash record jackpot winner! Daniel Woodgerd of Missoula claimed the $300,000 Montana Cash jackpot from the October 15 drawing, with a ticket purchased at Westside Lanes & Fun Center, 1615 Wyoming; Missoula. Daniel's winning ticket was the largest jackpot ever hit for Montana Cash in the long history of the game.

Daniel usually checks his Lottery tickets when he buys new tickets, but hadn't purchased any tickets in a few weeks. He had no idea he was walking around with a $300,000 winning ticket in his pocket. When he saw that no one had claimed the winning jackpot ticket, he decided it was time to finally check his ticket. When he did he was in for a $300,000 surprise and with Christmas around the corner, the timing couldn't be better!

Montana Cash is one of the Montana Lottery's longest running games and re-launched May 11 with exciting changes. Jackpots now start at $40,000 and increase until it is won. With these changes, jackpots have been able to grow bigger, meaning more money for Montana Cash players. In addition, there are all new prize levels and the overall odds are improved. The Montana Cash jackpot is $180,000 for Saturday's drawing.
