CHEYENNE, Wyoming — The Wyoming Lottery Corporation is planning to announce details about a new lottery game to be launched this spring.

The announcement is expected Friday afternoon in Cheyenne.

Wyoming entered the nationwide lottery frenzy last year. Currently, the Wyoming Lottery consists only of two games now: Powerball and Mega Millions. Both are national draw games with jackpots reaching into the hundreds of millions of dollars.

The new game will likely be an in-state draw game similar to the Powerball and Mega Millions.

But the in-state game will offer better odds for winning because players are competing against those who bought tickets sold only in Wyoming and not nationwide.

There will be no scratch games because Wyoming law prohibits those types of games.
