Branded as WyoLotto, The Wyoming Lottery Corporation is a lottery that is based out of Cheyenne, Wyoming and it started its operations back in July 2013, having been signed into law in March 2013.
Tickets went on sale on August 24, 2014, and close to $200,000 was raised in a single day. By the end of its first month, the Wyoming State Lottery had reached $1.8 million, far exceeding expectations. A nine-member board of directors governs the Wyoming Lottery Corporation and the Governor, Matt Mead, personally selects each one of them. Jon Clontz, former Oregon State Lottery COO was selected to be the Wyoming Lottery’s first CEO. The first $6 million in revenue that was raised through lottery ticket sales in the state went toward paying back start-up loans and city governments around the state.
Today, proceeds from ticket sales go toward the state’s Education Trust Fund to assist K-12 programs. Players must be 18 years old or older to purchase Wyoming Lottery tickets and redeem their prizes.
