December 10, 2019

Cheyenne, Wyoming

The University of Wyoming Cowboys football season continues with one more game at the Arizona Bowl. To add to the excitement, the Wyoming Lottery is offering one last BOGO for Cowboy Draw®. This time, however, it will run on Dec. 15 as a celebration and appreciation to the players and fans.

The promotion will run 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 15. “We heard the players say how much they love this promotion, so we wanted to thank them and celebrate the Pokes with one last BOGO. This time though, we won’t tie it to a game. We just want fans and players to celebrate!” said Jon Clontz, CEO of Wyoming Lottery Corporation.

This BOGO will be the last chance for Cowboy Draw players for the year. The promotion ran during the 2019 football season to give fans more chances to win after a Wyoming home game win. WyoLotto has been a proud sponsor of UW athletics for the last five years.

Cowboy Draw is Wyoming’s own game, with better odds and more winners. Since Aug. 1, 2019, Cowboy Draw winners have taken home more than $2.3 million. Don’t forget to play all of WyoLotto’s games, including Mega Millions®, Powerball®, and Lucky for Life®, or just ask for a Round Up and play all four games for $13!
