Wyoming Lottery Start-Up Date Uncertain

January 14, 2014 State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
Whalen

It’s still too early to say for certain, but Wyoming could see lottery tickets go on sale here early this summer.  Teton County Sheriff Jim Whalen who sits on the lottery board says the June target is optimistic, and considering the elements that are not yet in place – like finding and contracting with a vender – the start-up date could be as late as October.  Whalen points out that the request for proposal is just now being put out and replies have not yet all come back in. He says, “So much is mired in ‘legalese’ that that we have to be exceedingly careful as we move forward; and very deliberate in moving forward – we only one chance to do this right.” Whalen says initially, tickets will be limited to the multi-state Megamillions and Powerball, with the profits to the state being shared between multiple interests. He says the first six-million dollars will be divvied up among the cities and counties.  After that six-million dollar profit, he says it will be used for schools. Governor Matt Mead signed the bill last March which cleared the way to start the process of bringing lottery games to Wyoming.
