If you bought ticket number 033146 or ticket number 058959 in the Montana Millionaire raffle, today is a very good day - those were the two winning numbers, each worth one million dollars.

And if you bought ticket number 254026, you're a big winner, too - of $100,000.

The winning numbers were announced at Montana Lottery headquarters in Helena on Tuesday morning.
