Written by Andrew-Rossi on December 18, 2018
There’s no sibling rivalry, it seems, in the biggest jackpot ever won in the WyoLotto Cowboy Draw.
On Tuesday, December 11th, a brother and sister from Casper walked into the WyoLotto offices with the winning $3.3 million dollar Cowboy DrawⓇ ticket. They purchased the winning ticket at Ridley’s Family Market in Casper on December 5 for the December 6 drawing.
According to officials with WyoLotto, the siblings were born and raised in Casper and continue to call it home. They said they are frequent WyoLotto players, mainly buying Cowboy Draw tickets, saying that the odds are better.
The two told officials that when they found out that they had the winning ticket, they were both in shock and put the ticket in a fireproof safe for safe keeping. They are both retired and plan to travel with their winnings. But they aren’t satisfied with winning the biggest jackpot in WyoLotto history – they said they’ve already bought their tickets for the next draw.
Since Cowboy Draw launched in March 2015, the game has celebrated twenty jackpot wins with six of those exceeding a million dollars. Over $28 million dollars have been awarded in total since the game launched in 2015.
