CASPER, Wyoming — Plans for a fourth Wyoming Lottery game may be put on hold.

Wyoming Lottery Corporation CEO Jon Clontz says he doesn't want to pursue the new game called All or Nothing this year.

Clontz tells the Casper Star-Tribune (http://bit.ly/1JAfUXd ) that the lottery will focus on current operations and wait to see if the Legislature creates a gaming commission to oversee all gambling in Wyoming.

Some lawmakers want the lottery to concentrate on distributing money to cities, towns and counties.

The lottery has to pay off a bank loan first before it can start distributing money.

The Wyoming Lottery began selling Powerball and Mega Millions tickets last August and recently launched the Cowboy Draw, a Wyoming only game.

The proposed All or Nothing game would also have been exclusive to Wyoming.
