Adrien Rick F. Criner Jr. of Kalispell, Montana, makes bread for a living.
Now, he is rolling in dough in more ways than one. Criner recently claimed a $150,000 Montana Cash jackpot prize from Montana Lottery headquarters.
He bought his winning ticket from Rosauers located at in Kalispell for the November 5 drawing.
Criner works for Eddy’s Bread, and buys Montana Cash tickets once in a while, he said.
Two weeks ago, he stopped at Rosauers for a delivery last week and bought a ticket. A few days later, he was back at Rosauers and checked his Lottery tickets.
After the clerk told him that he had won, Criner said, I was in shock, and almost passed out!
He first tried to call his wife at work. She didn’t believe him because he has played similar jokes on her before. She hung up on me, Rick added.
Now, she believes him.
The Criners have three sons, two of which will be going to college in two years.
We plan to save most of it, and will put our boys through college, Rick said.
By the numbers:
Tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot is worth $73 million.
Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot is $50 million.
Friday night’s Euro Millions is worth 15 million Euros.
Good luck everyone.
