We’re proud to be a part of Wyoming’s unique culture and to contribute to its growing economy. We embrace the heritage of initiative, independence and resourcefulness that characterize Wyoming’s citizens and we promise to make sure that the Wyoming Lottery and its games reflect the values that make Wyoming a special place to live, work and play.
It’s been a long time coming, but thanks to the 2013 legislative session and the governor’s signing of House Bill 77, Wyoming finally has a state lottery.
The Wyoming Lottery Corporation is committed to providing a fun, exciting and entertaining gaming experience to Wyoming’s lottery players. In addition to the multi-state lotteries, Powerball® and Mega Millions®, our portfolio of games will eventually include other games, as well. Our business is founded on the values of fairness, integrity, security, honesty and a desire to contribute to the state of Wyoming’s economy through sales generated by a fun and exciting portfolio of games. We incorporate the highest standards to achieve challenging and innovative goals and provide quality customer service.
For years, Wyoming’s Powerball and Mega Millions lottery players spent their lottery dollars in neighboring states that have lotteries. The Wyoming Lottery helps ensure that those Wyoming dollars will stay in Wyoming and support Wyoming’s communities.
Like all for-profit businesses, the goal of the Wyoming Lottery Corporation is to make money. But, unlike typical businesses, Wyoming Lottery net revenues will be distributed by the state to Wyoming’s cities, towns and counties and deposited into the state’s Permanent Land Fund’s Common School Account. In other words, except for operating expenses and winner payouts, all of the money the Wyoming Lottery takes in goes back to the state of Wyoming. We’re looking forward to making a significant financial contribution to Wyoming in the years ahead, and to participating as a socially responsible supporter of local businesses, organizations, institutions and events throughout the state. Our support of education and local events are examples of our community involvement.
For more, we invite you to watch a Wyoming PBS interview with WyoLotto CEO, Jon Clontz starting at minute 11:46.
When it comes to our players, having a healthy relationship with gambling matters. We are a proud member of the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) which provides resources and services to those with a gambling problem. Information about responsible gambling and the National Gamblers Helpline are available to our players on our Play Responsibly page. WyoLotto is also a founding member of the Wyoming Responsible Gambling Coalition, formed in partnership with the Wyoming Department of Health, which exists to foster smart gaming in Wyoming and encourage people to gamble responsibly. We are a source of entertainment for our players and it’s important to us that we remain just that.
