Kalispell man claims $50K lottery prize
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — A Kalispell man has claimed a $50,000 top prize from the "Casino Nights" scratch lottery game.
Montana Lottery officials say James Ask claimed his prize on Monday. He bought his winning ticket at Smith's Food & Drug in Columbia Falls.
James and his wife, Kimber, say they plan to put half of their winnings into a college savings fund for their two children. He says they'll likely invest most of the rest of it, but will probably use some to "go crazy."
