Why are WyoLotto ticket purchases cash only?
The legislation that created the Lottery requires all purchases be cash only.
Will there be scratch games?
At this time, no. The legislation that authorized the creation of a lottery in Wyoming specifically prohibits scratch games. However, we are always researching other draw games to add in the future!
Will the Wyoming Lottery have other games besides what is currently offered?
Yes! Since launching, we’ve added a variety of new draw games, and we are always conducting research to determine other draw games that may be a good fit for Wyoming.

Winning & Claiming Prizes

If I win more than $600 do I have to come to the WyoLotto office in Cheyenne to claim it?
You can claim winnings over $600 either in person at Lottery headquarters or by submitting a winner claim form through the mail. Contact us at 307.432.9300 for more information
Does WyoLotto have a member’s club?
Not at the moment, but stay tuned to our website and social media pages for an announcement when we do introduce one.
If I win a lottery game, can I remain anonymous?
We will honor requests for anonymity from winners. However, we certainly hope winners will allow us to share their names and good news with other players.
What happens if a clerk enters the wrong numbers and they don’t match the playslip?
Cowboy Draw tickets are cancellable only by returning the ticket to the retailer that sold the ticket and on the same date of purchase. If a clerk enters the wrong numbers on a Cowboy Draw ticket you may ask that they cancel the ticket. Powerball, Mega Millions, Lucky for Life, and 2by2 tickets are not cancellable. Should any issues arise, please contact us.

About the Wyoming Lottery

Where does the Lottery money go?
Lottery net proceeds go to the Wyoming State Treasurer. From there, it is distributed to cities, towns and counties.
Why doesn’t WyoLotto sponsor/attend more events around the state?
While we’d love to attend every event around the state, most occur in a short period of time making it difficult for our small staff to make it happen. If you would like to see WyoLotto at your event, please feel free to submit your request at https://wyolotto.com/lottery/sponsorship/
