HELENA — Once again tickets for The Montana Lotttery’s Montana Millionaire game have sold out at a record pace.
All 180,000 tickets were sold out by 1:12 p.m. on Dec. 2, 2019, five days earlier than in 2018.
The Montana Lottery has yet to set an official date, but the grand prize drawing will be held sometime between Dec. 25 and Jan. 1.
An early bird drawing will be held on Dec. 13 for $15,000. An additional $25,000 early bird drawing was held on Nov. 29. That early bird winning number was 70133 and the ticket was sold at the Loaf 'N Jug in Glendive.
Tickets for the game went on sale Nov. 1 and the Montana Lottery added an additional 30,000 tickets to the pool this year.
One of the reasons the Montana Millionaire game is popular is that always guarantees to pay out every prize.
