Etna Resident Wins Cowboy Draw

by Jackson Hole Radio News

WyoLotto says­­ the winners of the $811-thousand drawing last week have been identified, and the winnings will be shared by two friends. According to a release from the state games, the two, identified only as Gale and Judy from Etna, Wyoming,  met approximately 25 years ago, when Gale became very ill and was in the hospital. Judy happened to be a blood donor that was on call if donations were ever needed urgently, which occurred from time to time. The two ladies jointly often purchased lottery tickets, vowing to share their winnings if they ever won. That happened on January 6th when their numbers were drawn for a jackpot of $811,058. The Cowboy Draw jackpot has now been hit 24 times since it was launched in March 2015 totaling more than $37 million since its launch. The Cowboy Draw jackpot was last hit on Oct. 21, 2019, at more than $1.1 million.
