BILLINGS MAN CLAIMS FIRST $19,772 BIG SKY BONUS JACKPOT
April 23, 2016
Ralph Arnold, a semi-truck driver from Billings, won Montana’s first Big Sky Bonus jackpot, buying the state’s first winning ticket at Casey’s Corner in his Lockwood neighborhood.

Arnold and his wife, Tracy, are dedicated Lottery players, with Arnold playing Powerball twice a week.

Arnold bought his winning Big Sky Bonus ticket at the urging of his granddaughter, who is an assistant manager at Casey’s Corner, located at 2816 Old Hardin Rd. She told the couple about the new Montana-designed, Montana-only game which has some of the best odds of winning of any Montana Lotto game.

Tracy Arnold discovered Arnold had won when she was reading the news online and saw that Casey’s Corner had sold the first winning Big Sky Bonus jackpot ticket. She checked Arnold’s ticket and knew it was the winner. 

The Arnolds know exactly what they will do with their Big Sky Bonus winnings. 

“It’s going straight into the toilet,” Arnold said. 

They are going to use the money to connect to the new Lockwood sewer system, which is under construction. 

The Montana Lottery was created by referendum in 1986. Since then, it has paid over $497 million in prizes and returned approximately $224 million to the State of Montana.
