The Montana Lottery is introducing four new Scratch games on January 6. Our first 2016 release includes Hot $1,000.00, White Hot Bingo, All Cash, No Taxes and a perennial favorite, Deluxe Super Hot 7's. The table provides pricing, top prizes and Bonus Play info, but if you want a more complete rundown on the prize structure for these games, please go to http://www.montanalottery.com/scratch for a complete game summary.

You might be asking yourself why the top prize for All Cash, No Taxes is such an odd number. This is because the player who wins will go home with $10,000 in their pocket, the rest goes to pay the winner's withholding tax. Not a bad selling point.

Look for increased sales in Hot Lotto with Sizzler this month. The Lottery will be running a small advertising campaign to promote Hot Lotto, so you should see more interest. Make sure your staff knows the basics - Hot Lotto jackpots start at $1 Million, the Sizzler option allows a 3X multiplier on any prize except the jackpot, and drawings are held Wednesday and Saturday at 8:59 PM. More importantly, tax withholdings are paid on the jackpot prize. So the cash value shown is what a player puts in their pocket if they win. But just the jackpot, not the other prizes, we need to make sure that's clear. The Lottery is working hard to get the word out on Hot Lotto with Sizzler, so make sure you're ready when players come through the door.

HELENA – Christina Deyerle was putting her son, Corbin, in his car seat when her husband called to ask if they won Montana Millionaire. Sarcastically, she said, “No,” but went to the Lottery’s Facebook page just to make sure. Surprise! Dalton, Christina’s 5-year-old son, said, “Mom just yelled a little,” and Christina accidently hung up on her husband. She did call back, and they concluded it might actually be a winning ticket!

Christina purchased her Montana Millionaire ticket at the Town Pump at 418 West Main in East Helena. She said this was her first Lottery win, although she amended that to say she did win $4 on her stocking stuffer Scratch tickets.

Christina isn’t sure what she is going to do with the winnings. She has only known she was a winner for about 10 minutes, and it hadn’t really sunk in yet. The only thing that’s set in stone is Dalton gets $100! He was more excited than his Mom.

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.
