Mon, 27 Apr 2015 16:19:46 GMT
Scratch fever is catching! We had another big Scratch winner come to Lottery headquarters today to claim their prize. Joseph Obenhoff of Butte claimed his $10,000 Scratch prize that he won while playing "$250,000 Instant Jackpot" with a ticket purchased at Town Pump, 531 S Montana.; Butte.

Joseph had purchased his winning Scratch ticket a month ago. He had placed it in his briefcase and forgot all about it. While waiting for his son today he stumbled upon the ticket and decided to scratch it while he waited. To his surprise, he found out that he had been carrying around a $10,000 ticket in his briefcase for a month!

Joseph and his son drove directly to Helena when they realized they had won. Joseph plans on using his winnings to pay some bills but stated that "he will do at least one fun thing with his winnings."
