Make History, Buy the First WyoLotto Ticket

Aug 14, 14 Make History, Buy the First WyoLotto Ticket

Aug. 14, 2014 – How would you like to be the first person ever to buy a lottery ticket in Wyoming?  The WyoLotto is offering soon-to-be players in the state just that chance, but the window of opportunity is quickly closing.

WyoLotto’s launch date is just over a week away – 10 days to be exact – on Aug. 24.  Through a special giveaway contest, one lucky grand prize winner will purchase the first-ever WyoLotto ticket, a ceremonial transaction usually reserved for state officials.

The contest entry period closes this Saturday, Aug. 16, at noon.  That gives Wyoming residents 18 years old or older just two days to enter.

But entering the contest, called the Launch Day Giveaway, is easy.  Just head to, or go straight to the contest page here.

Along with getting their name in Wyoming’s history books, the grand prize winner will also receive $1,000 cash, a full year’s worth of Mega Millions tickets (that could turn into a whole lot more), and a brand-new 2014 Jeep Wrangler.

The winner will also get to choose one of their local WyoLotto retailers to host a lottery launch party, and it is there that the state’s very first lottery ticket will be sold.

But Wyoming’s Lottery isn’t stopping there – eight other lucky contest winners, each from a different area of the state, will also score a $1,000 cash prize and the year’s supply of Mega Millions tickets, as well as an invitation to a pre-launch event.

Time is running out – there’s even a countdown clock on – so enter now.  Maybe in about a week, you’ll become a big part of Wyoming’s history.
