By Beacon Staff

HELENA – A Kalispell man has claimed a $150,000 Montana Cash jackpot.

Adrien “Rick” Criner Jr. bought his winning ticket for the Nov. 5 drawing at Rosauers in Kalispell and claimed his prize Wednesday.

Criner works for Eddy’s Bread and says he buys Montana Cash tickets once in a while. He says he almost passed out when he checked his tickets the day after the drawing and learned he won.

Criner and his wife have three sons, two of which will be going to college in two years. He says they plan to save most of the money for college expenses.
