March 16, 2020 – The spread of COVID-19 is affecting every one of us, even here in Wyoming. We put our players, staff and supporters first, and we want to make sure we are following all precautions recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH). Our entire team wants to assure everyone that we are constantly monitoring the situation.
Right now may be the best time for Wyoming to thaw off their cars and go get a Cowboy Draw® ticket! The jackpot has now warmed up to half a million dollars. That could buy 10,000 really nice heated blankets.
Cowboy Draw tickets also make great Valentine’s Day gifts. “We have seen many winners of $1,000 and more from a ticket given to them as a gift,” said Jon Clontz, CEO of the Wyoming Lottery Corporation.
