The WyoLotto turned five on August 24th–The entire state has played a huge role in creating a new revenue stream for Wyoming and a platform to give back to the state.
To show just how far the WyoLotto has come in just five years, this past July, WyoLotto transferred $1,201,849 to the State Treasurer’s Office, bringing the total amount this fiscal year to over $6.6 million. This is the largest fiscal year transfer total since WyoLotto started making transfers to the state in April 2016 and the seventh consecutive transfer to the state of over $1 million, totaling over $16 million.
Jon Clontz–CEO of WyoLotto–said.quote–“Giving back to Wyoming is what WyoLotto set out to accomplish when it was formed five years ago. We measure our success by what we are able to give back–and we are proud to be able to give back over $1 million to the state of Wyoming this quarter and $16 million over the past five years. We look forward to more Wyoming winners–more money given back to the state–and many more WyoLotto birthdays to celebrate.” End quote.
