Big Sky, Big Bonus

“I farm,” says Lance W. of Toole County, Montana, known as Big Sky Country. Being 20 miles outside of town, it isn’t always easy to grab lottery tickets when the mood strikes. So Lance has been giving Jackpocket a try.

While riding dirt bikes with his son for July 4th, Lance was experiencing spotty cell phone reception. “All of a sudden, I received a bunch of messages from when we were riding along.”

One of those messages was a “Big Winner Alert” from Jackpocket. He had won top prize in Big Sky Bonus worth $4,291!

I farm. I am 20 miles from a town. Jackpocket is a simple,easy way to play. It keeps tracks of my tickets for me. I don’t have to look up if I won.

Lance had to stop, get off the bike, and take in what had just happened.

While his $4,291 prize was “not a retirement win,” Lance says, “It was a very nice bonus. I spent the money on bills.” 

Bold stripes, bright stars, and big wins! That’s our kind of July 4th surprise. Congrats to Lance! He joins over 1.1 million Jackpocket lottery winners and counting. Meet a few right here.
