The Montana Lottery was established by a citizen referendum which was passed on November 4, 1986, by 68.97% of voters. The lottery has generated more than $281 million to date to benefit the state of Montana and has paid more than $694 million in prizes to lottery winners. The Montana Lottery sold its first lottery ticket on June 24, 1987. Since 1990, the revenue generated by the Montana Lottery has gone to the Montana General Fund, where lawmakers use the revenues – along with all other state revenues – to fund the majority of state government and programs.
Big Sky Bonus joined the Montana Lottery club in April 2016 replacing 10 Spot- Montana’s original daily draw game, and since then has been producing innumerable winners and fulfilling the million-dollar dreams of many.
