Montana Millionaire tickets to go on sale
Tickets for the Montana Millionaire raffle went on sale Thursday.
Montana Lottery officials say up to 130,000 tickets will be sold for $20 each for a chance at the grand prize of $1 million. Tickets will be available until Dec. 31, or until all the tickets are sold.
In addition to the grand prize, numbers will be drawn on Jan. 1 for two $100,000 prizes and three $10,000 prizes. This year's game includes 500 instant-win prizes of $500 each along with 200 instant wins worth $50 each.
Lottery officials will hold early bird drawings on Nov. 23 and Dec. 14 for a $10,000 prize each day.
The instant win and early bird winning tickets will still be eligible for the final drawings.
