HELENA - Two Montana tickets matched four white balls and the Powerball to win $10,000 jackpots from Wednesday's drawing.
David Poole of Helena claimed a $10,000 Powerball jackpot prize on Friday with a ticket that he bought at Town Pump on North Montana Avenue.
Poole said that he plans to use his winnings as a nest egg for when he gets out of the Army, and also plans to buy more Powerball tickets for the $600 million jackpot drawing on Saturday.
He said that he is thinking of ways he would help others if he matches all five numbers and the Powerball on Saturday and brings home the $600 million jackpot prize to Big Sky Country.
The other $10,000 winner from Wednesday is from Belfry. That person has not yet claimed his or her prize.
