Workshop Details and Schedule

CHEYENNE – Wyoming retailers interested in selling Powerball® and Mega Millions® tickets should attend one of the nine workshops being held over the next two weeks.

The Wyoming Lottery Corp. will hold workshops in Evanston on April 22, Jackson on April 23, Riverton on April 24, two in Cheyenne on April 25, Gillette on April 28, Sheridan on April 29, two in Casper on April 30, and Rock Springs and Cody on May 6.

By attending the workshops, retailers will learn about the lottery, as well as gain a better understanding of the retailer application and selection process. The workshops will also include a facilitated discussion to seek retailers’ feedback on the application and contract.

“Obtaining input from the retailers is a priority for the lottery,” said Jon Clontz, Wyoming Lottery’s Chief Executive Officer. “We need to make sure that the process is equitable for the majority of retailers, because the lottery will not be successful unless retailers are successful.”

Clontz explained that the lottery will take retailers’ feedback into consideration when solidifying the application and contract. Once finalized, the application and contract will be presented to the lottery’s board of directors during a public meeting. The board’s approval will open the application process and launch efforts to recruit retailers.
