This award highlights the commitment WyoLotto has made to give back to the communities that support them.

Since launch, WyoLotto has also seen 3,964,542 winners, over $55 million in player winnings, and over $8.3 million in retailer commissions. These are just a few of the many ways the Wyoming Lottery has made substantial impacts on the state.
