HELENA – Randy Mai of Billings has stepped forward to claim the grand prize in the annual “Montana Millionaire” drawing of the Montana Lottery.

Mai claimed his winnings at Montana Lottery headquarters in Helena on Thursday, according to a Thursday press release.

He bought his winning ticket on Nov. 30 at McFiny’s on 17th Street West in Billings.

It isn’t the first time this McFiny’s has sold the winning Montana Millionaire ticket. In 2011, the winning Montana Millionaire ticket was sold there as well.

The Montana Lottery created Montana Millionaire in 2007 and the game has made one Montanan a millionaire each year since.

The game has other prizes, including three $100,000 prizes and five $10,000 prizes. The winning numbers were drawn on December 28. At the time of the press release, one $100,000 prize and four $10,000 prizes remain unclaimed. The names of the other winners have not yet been released.
