April 10, 2015

Winning ticket will be sold in Wyoming  

The jackpot for the new Cowboy Draw® game has doubled, giving players a chance to win $500,000 during the next drawing, which takes place Monday, April 13 at 2:00 p.m. If the jackpot gets hit, one or more lucky WyoLotto™ players will go down in history as the first large jackpot winner(s) in the state.

Since the launch of the Wyoming lottery in August of last year, 313,949 WyoLotto players have won a total of $1,796,643. If someone hits the jackpotMonday, this $500,000 Cowboy Draw jackpot alone will push that total to $2.3 million.

The winning numbers for the April 9 drawing were 1, 16, 27, 36, and 39. Since no one matched all five numbers in Thursday’s drawing, the Cowboy Draw jackpot has grown to $500,000, and will keep growing until a WyoLotto player strikes it rich.

The number of Cowboy Draw winners keeps growing: with only six drawings since Cowboy Draw’s launch, already 63 lucky players have won $1,000 each. More than half of these winners have not yet claimed their winnings. Players can check their tickets against the winning numbers at wyolotto.com to see if they have won.
