Big Cowboy Draw Jackpot Ticket Purchased In Casper
A lucky Cowboy Draw player won nearly $750,000 with a ticket purchased in Casper. WyoLotto officials say the ticket for Monday's drawing, which hit the fifth largest jackpot in the history of the game, was sold at Mountain View Conoco on Yellowstone Highway. The jackpot is $746, 022.00. Officials did not name the winner.
This month marks the second "birthday" of the Cowboy Draw game. It was launched in March of 2015 as the first WyoLotto game sold only in Wyoming, and officials say it had more than $8.9 million dollars in winnings in the last year alone.
WyoLotto's CEO, Jon Clontz, says, "It's hard to believe we launched this game two years ago. Cowboy Draw has become such a player favorite with its western flair, better odds, and two chances to hit the jackpot starting at $250,000. It truly captures the spirit of Wyoming and WyoLotto."
