Montana Lottery Commission to Meet

The Montana Lottery's next scheduled commission meeting will be held on Thursday, June 10, 2021 at 9 a.m. The meeting will take place by video conference call and is open to the public. A complete agenda, meeting materials and instruction for accessing the meeting are available on the Lottery’s website at https://www.montanalottery.com/en/view/commissioners

The Lottery Commission consists of five members appointed to four-year staggered terms by the Governor. Current Commissioners are: Tom Keegan, Helena; Leo Prigge, Butte; Tony Harbaugh, Miles City; Steve Morris, Helena; and Commission Chair, John Tarr of Helena.

Lottery Commissioners are responsible for determining policies for the operation of the Lottery and considering recommendations of Lottery staff in the types and forms of games offered, as well as percentages of prizes paid and price of each ticket or chance sold. 

The Montana Lottery was created by referendum in 1986. Since then, it has paid over $694 million in prizes and returned approximately $289 million to the State of Montana.
