Montana Lottery starts new Keno-style game today

Montana LotteryMontana Lottery: Montana Lottery starts new Keno-style game today

HELENA, Mt. — The Montana Lottery is introducing a new keno-like game called 10 Spot.  Lottery officials say the new game, featuring two daily drawings, will be available Monday.

Players choose 10 numbers out of 80 for each drawing.  Each play costs $1 and multi-play tickets are available.

Twice each day, the Montana Lottery will draw 20 numbers.  Players who match 10 of the 20 numbers will win the top prize of $25,000.  Those who match nine will win $2,500.  There are also prizes for matching eight, seven, six and five, and a $2 payout if a player doesn't match any numbers.

The drawings are held at 12:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. each day.

The winning numbers will be posted on Lottery Post's Montana Lottery Results page (www.lotterypost.com/results/mt) within minutes of each drawing.

    Only $25,000 for matching 10?  I hope that was a typo.

        Because it's more likely to hit 5 numbers than not hit any at all.  It's just pretty much a "we feel sorry for you" payout.

            In Keno, it's as hard to match nothing as it is to match four or more of the winning numbers.

            * your best chance at winning a lottery jackpot is to buy a ticket *

              You get paid for matching nothing? I'm an expert at that!

                That's even weaker than Texas' Cash 5. The odds are WAY out of line for that kind of money.

                  Those payouts for this game in Montana are way out of line.

                  I wonder who came up with them. Don't play the game Montana players.

                  You are getting totally robbed!

                    Unfortunately, it's not a typo. It really is just a horrible payout.

                      Despite all the negative comments, the game payout percentage on Montana's game is higher than that of Ohio's, due to Montana's higher payouts for hitting 6 and 7. The Ohio game payout percentage is 50.91%, Montana's is 58.71%.
