GREAT FALLS - Tickets for the annual Montana Millionaire raffle went on sale on Tuesday.

The Montana Lottery said that this year's Montana Millionaire will once again feature two million-dollar grand prizes this year.

A second-tier prize of $100,000 has also been added to the final drawing.

There will also be two "Early Bird" drawings: a $100,000 drawing will be on Nov. 25; a $25,000 drawing will be on Dec. 16.

In addition, there will be 3,000 “instant win” tickets: 1,800 of the tickets will be worth $500, and 1,200 of the tickets will be worth $100.

Tickets are $20 each; there will be 280,000 tickets sold this year.

They can be bought at most convenience stores, gas stations, and grocery stores.

Tickets will be sold until they are all bought — which happened in just six days last year.

The Montana Lottery said the drawing date for the three big prizes (two for $1M, one for $100K) will be between December 26, 2022, and January 1, 2023; the exact date has not yet been determined.
