East Helena men claim $1M, $10K Montana Millionaire prizes; Havre man claims $100K prize


HELENA, Montana — Two East Helena men and one from Havre have claimed their winnings from the Montana Millionaire drawing.

Jeff Fallang claimed the jackpot while Walter Slayman claimed his $10,000 prize on Friday morning. Both bought their winning tickets at the Town Pump on Lane Avenue in East Helena.

Fallang's mom was first to let him know he had the winning ticket. He says he plans to buy a house and plans to return to work.

Slayman says his son called him after Tuesday's drawing to tell him that two of the winning tickets were sold in East Helena. Slayman checked his ticket and called his son back with the good news.

Meanwhile, Richard Hentschel of Havre claimed a $100,000 prize with a ticket he purchased at Markus Foods in Whitefish.

Still to be claimed are another $100,000 prize and two more $10,000 prizes.
