The Wyoming Lottery Commission yesterday unveiled the logo that will be used for Wyoming’s lottery sales.  In addition to the words “WyoLotto” emblazoned across the middle of it, it depicts a jackalope reaching for a star.  Lottery Commission Chief Executive Officer Jon Clontz says he believes it is an image that relates very well to Wyoming.  He says he believes the logo is very unique but also relates in a very familiar way to people in Wyoming.  He says, “They’ll see it that’s within that Wyoming culture, but also (you know) it’s different than the other icons and things that you see representing Wyoming.” While tickets won’t be going on sale right away, Clontz says that time is approaching soon.  Once the lottery participation begins here, state law requires that the first $6-million of the revenue the state derives from the lottery will be distributed to cities, towns and counties based on Wyoming’s tax formula.  Additional earning will be placed in the state’s permanent land fund’s common school account.
