WyoLotto 12-6, 2016
WyoLottoTM CEO Jon Clontz announced today that a new kind of luck is coming to Wyoming. WyoLotto hosted a celebration for the launch of its newest game, Lucky for LifeⓇ, in Cheyenne at the Cheyenne Depot Museum.
Clontz was joined by WyoLotto Board Chairman Mark Macy and Lucky for Life’s Wyoming spokesperson, Luck.
Lucky for Life is a national game with a unique jackpot; for $2 per ticket, players have the chance to win $1,000 a day for life. Lucky for Life also offers players the opportunity to win $25,000 a year for life and smaller prize options.
“Lucky for Life offers the jackpot of a lifetime, and we’re proud to introduce our players to an exciting new game that continues WyoLotto’s tradition of fun and excitement,” Clontz said. Tickets went on sale at all WyoLotto retailers on Dec. 4.
Ride of a Lifetime Winner
Leading up to the launch of the game, WyoLotto held the Ride of a Lifetime giveaway, which included a Camaro and a Harley Davidson trike. Today, Nathan Harrison and his wife Michelle, were at the celebration to accept their prizes. Yolo, WyoLotto’s mascot, presented Harrison with the keys to a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro LT coupe and a 2016 Harley-Davidson Freewheeler, plus $3,000 cash.
“The fact that I won didn’t sink in until I got home and was talking about it with my wife, and then I danced a little jig in the house,” Harrison said.
Harrison and his wife live in Mountain View, Wyo., along with their two children, Dylan, 17, and Kadee, 15. He added that his children were so excited about the vehicles that they were running around the house screaming.
Harrison is a Wyoming native, but left the state to serve his country in the Army for several years. Now retired from the military, he returned to Wyoming and now works for the Wyoming Department of Transportation.
He added “This was a heck of a way to win your mid-life crisis car.”
A Giveaway of a Lifetime
“Now that players can buy Lucky for Life tickets, we’re happy to announce that playing the game just got more exciting,” Clontz said. “We want to send a WyoLotto player and their guest on a trip to Ireland to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.”
Starting today, players can enter to win a trip to Ireland by purchasing a Lucky for Life ticket at any WyoLotto retailer, visiting WyoLotto.com/Lucky, and entering the promo code printed on the ticket.
The lucky winner receives a trip for two to Ireland from March 11-18, 2017. The prize includes airfare for two from Denver International Airport, one hotel room for two individuals, $3,000 cash, two tour packages, and meals.
Players can enter from Dec. 4, 2016 to Jan. 4, 2017, and WyoLotto will announce the winner on Jan. 19, 2017. For more details, go to WyoLotto.com/Lucky.
