(HELENA) The Montana Lottery drew the winning ticket number for the 2018 Montana Millionaire game on Friday morning.

Lottery officials say all 150,000 tickets had been sold by December 5th. That is the earliest date in the game’s 12- year history.

Jennifer McKee, Montana Lottery communications director, said, “We wanted to create a big winner every year so no matter what was happening in Powerball, what’s happening in Mega Millions, somebody in Montana is going to be a millionaire, and it works exactly how we designed it. We make a millionaire every year and it’s really really fun.”
