Wyoming Lottery Will Consider Adding New Game


AP 3-16,2016

The Wyoming Lottery Corp. board of directors will consider adding a new draw game that features a jackpot paying $1,000 a week for life.

State lottery CEO Jon Clontz says he’ll recommend the Lucky for Life game to the board during its scheduled meeting Thursday.

Lucky for Life is similar to Powerball in that players pick six numbers. Matching all six numbers wins the jackpot. The ticket costs $2.

Lucky for Life is different in that the jackpot prize is $1,000 a day for the life of the winner. Second prize is $25,000 a year for life.

WyoLotto began selling Powerball and Mega Millions tickets in 2014. Both games are sell tickets in multiple states. The Cowboy Draw game was added a year ago, selling tickets only in Wyoming.
