HELENA, Mont. (AP) — An eastern Montana woman has claimed the $250,000 Wild Card jackpot from the June 25 drawing.

Montana Lottery officials say Dixie Rieger of Miles City claimed her winnings Monday. She bought her ticket at Albertsons in Miles City.

Rieger says she's on medical leave from her hospital job and will use some of the money to pay medical bills. She also plans on doing some fun things with her winnings and saving the rest.

Wild Card is played in Idaho, Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota. Wednesday's jackpot is $205,000.
