HELENA, Mont. (AP) - A Denver woman's trip to visit her daughter at Montana State University really paid off.
Montana Lottery officials say Linda Cole won a $30,000 prize in the Nov. 30 Hot Lotto drawing. She bought her ticket at an Albertsons in Bozeman.
Cole bought her ticket while on an extended visit to Montana to spend time with her daughter, who plays basketball at MSU.
Cole says she plans to use some of the money to help her daughter with maintenance on her car and will put some aside in savings.
