Montana Lottery winning chances

Posted: Updated:

GREAT FALLS- Whether you're a ticket or scratch off lottery player, did you ever wonder where that money came from?

Well, all of the money in the Montana Lottery comes from players. Meaning, when you buy a ticket, that money goes into any dollar that's won.

In fact, games are designed to pay for themselves and any revenue left over transfers back to our state. 

Jennifer McKee, the Communications Manager for Montana Lottery explained the games are of course designed for people to win, but with tourism season in full swing does that impact your chances?

"Despite the millions of people who come to our state most of the winners are Montanans," said McKee. 

McKee said lottery sales are great in both tourist and non-tourist destinations. 

But since more Montanans play then non-Montanans, tourists don't generally hurt your chances of winning.
