HELENA, Mont. (AP) - A Butte woman wasted no time claiming the $290,000 jackpot from Wednesday’s Montana Cash drawing.

Lottery officials say Julie Mayson came to Lottery Headquarters in Helena on Thursday to claim her prize. She bought her winning ticket at Albertsons in Butte.

She and her husband both work for NorthWestern Energy and learned they had the winning ticket shortly after Wednesday’s drawing.

Mayson says she plans to pay some bills, put some money away for retirement and help her three daughters pay for college.
