Montana may not be the "luckiest state" when it comes to wining lotteries. According to a report we are actually the "unluckiest" state when it comes to winning lotteries. But, Montanans don't let that little fact get us down. When it comes to attitudes, Montana ranks as one of the top states with the "Winningest Attitudes". We are a confident and brave bunch.

Montanans Don't Let Bad Attitudes Get Us Down

A lot of Montana's attitude is a direct result of where we live. It isn't always easy to live in this state.
