Lottery officials, like Montana Lottery Marketing and Sales Director Anne Charpentier say that this drawing is the highlight of the year.

"It's always exciting when we get to pick our millionaires and we're always thrilled to make a millionaire over and over, especially when we get to make two," said Charpentier.

Montana Millionaire is a game with a fixed number of tickets. The Montana Lottery draws the winning numbers from the tickets sold, guaranteeing a winner.

2022 Montana Millionaire tickets sold in record time; all 280,000 tickets sold out in less than 30 hours.

"We are addressing, you know, the number of tickets as well as the prices and all the things we're looking at. The game as a whole, you know, looking to see what we can do to maybe have it sell a little bit longer," said Charpentier.

In the past, they have added more tickets and larger prizes.

For example, in the past the game featured smaller prizes and just one $1 million dollar grand prize. Now, it has two $1 million prizes and smaller "early bird" prizes.

"Our mission here at the lottery, maximizing the revenue generated to the state, but also want to keep the fun and keep those million dollar prizes as part of the game," said Charpentier, "So we are addressing all those things as we look to the future of Montana millionaire."
