The Montana Lottery had a very busy 2023. There were a lot of people that had dreams of winning a cool million dollars, I was one of them. Since the inception of the "Montana Millionaire" game, the demand has only increased. Lottery officials have responded to the demand. The lottery increased the "Montana Millionaire" game for 2023. The response and demand for tickets was pretty incredible.

Montana Millionaire Was Huge in 2023

In 2023 the lottery added another chance at winning a $1,000,000 jackpot. There were a total of three, $1,000,000 jackpots. They increased the amount of tickets to be sold to a total of 380,000 tickets at $20 per ticket. The tickets sold out in less than 5 hours when they went on sale. Will the Montana Lottery add another game for a chance to win $1,000,000 in 2024?

Yes, A Canadian Was A $1,000,000 Winner

I spoke with Daniel Iverson from the Montana Lottery about the "Montana Millionaire" game and what may be coming up in 2024. He confirmed that this year three jackpot winning tickets were sold in Great Falls, Kalispell and Billings. He also confirmed all three winning jackpots have been claimed already. Unlike last year that saw a $1,000,000 jackpot winning ticket go unclaimed in Montana. The winning ticket that was sold in Billings was claimed by a Canadian resident from Alberta. As of this writing the exchange rate is 1 Canadian Dollar = .75 U.S. Dollar.

Montana May See Even More Chances To Become a Millionaire in 2024

I asked Daniel about the possibility of adding in an additional "Montana Millionaire" game in 2024, since the demand is obviously there. At this point nothing is confirmed. What he could tell me was there have been discussions at the Montana Lottery about the subject. He could also confirm that, if they expand they hope to have a game proposal by March. So until then, the Montana Lottery had a lot of different games available, from scratch tickets to national lotteries for those that still dream of becoming a millionaire. Good luck and please play responsibly.
