Havre man claims $110K Montana Cash jackpot

HELENA (AP) — Montana Lottery officials say a Havre man has claimed the $110,000 Montana Cash jackpot from last Wednesday's drawing.

Charles Loudermilk bought his ticket at the Holiday Stationstore in Havre. He said he stopped at Holiday on Thursday to pick up a newspaper and saw a sign in the store that said the jackpot winner was from Havre.

He says he checked his ticket against the winning numbers in the newspaper and then went to tell his wife. The couple checked the Montana Lottery website and saw the jackpot was $20,000 and believed that's what they had won. However, the website was updated with Saturday's guaranteed minimum jackpot and it took them a while to realize how much they'd actually won.

Loudermilk says he plans to buy a more comfortable car and do some traveling.
