Reading your ticket

The fine print
  • The jackpot prize will be divided equally among multiple winning tickets.
  • The jackpot prize will be paid as a lump-sum cash payment equal to the advertised jackpot amount. No annuity option is available. Tax withholdings will be paid by the Montana Lottery based on the standard 25% federal and 6.9% state rates. Winners who do not furnish a Social Security number or are not citizens of the United States are subject to higher tax withholding rates and will receive less than the advertised jackpot amount.
  • The set prizes of $30,000 through $2 published here are based on the expected number of winners sharing the prize pool. In some cases, these prizes may be paid on a pari-mutuel basis and will be lower than the published prize levels.
