HELENA -A Three Forks man claimed a $100,000 top prize for the "$100,000 Golden Treasure" Scratch game with a ticket purchased at the Town Pump in Whitehall.
"I was so wound up," winner Chris McFadden said in a press release from the Montana Lottery. "I handed the ticket to grandpa to look at and when he said it was a winner I knew it was real," he added. This was only the fifth Scratch ticket Chris has ever purchased.
McFadden plans to use the money to celebrate his birthday and pay some bills.
