Casper resident wins MWC Basketball Tournament Giveaway

UW Hoops Giveaway Winner - Linda Kenny
UW Hoops Giveaway

Linda Kenny of Casper won a trip for two to Las Vegas, Nevada to watch the University of Wyoming Cowboys basketball team take to the court in the Mountain West Conference Tournament from March 11 – 15.

“I have won things in my lifetime, but nothing like this,” Kenny said. “I never won a trip and tickets to basketball games.”

Kenny, a professional computer programmer and developer, at first thought that the notification of her win was a scam, way too good to be true.  After a little research, she decided to respond. “Of course I am glad I did. I love watching sports and I prefer college over professional, except for baseball.”

Kenny’s name was randomly selected from among all valid entries in the WyoLotto™ Hoops Giveaway, a partnership between the Wyoming Lottery Corporation and University of Wyoming Sports Properties, the exclusive multi-media rights holder for UW Athletics to help generate support and excitement for the Wyoming Cowboys. The winner package includes roundtrip airfare for two to Las Vegas, hotel accommodations for two at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, two All Session Passes (includes all 19 games of the tournament), an invite to a pre-game Cowboy Joe Club party, branded UW and WyoLotto gear, and Mega Millions coupons for a year.
