Montana Millionaire is Expanding Again This Year

I have no illusions that I will be winning any kind of jackpot any time soon.

We asked our listeners on Facebook where they would live if they won a billion dollars. It may not come as a surprise, a majority of the people who answered would like to stay in Montana. Some who live out of state, dream of coming back to Montana. Some wouldn't tell us where they would live.

There were, of course, a lot of jokes about the cost of living in places like Bozeman and Missoula. One person said they would move "back home with their mom".

For the record if I ever won a jackpot, I would stay in Montana too.
