Eastern Wy. residents enter Nebraska to purchase lotto tickets

Posted: Updated:

It's a different scene for our neighbors to the west.

Wyoming officials have been working on ways for residents to buy lotto tickets in the state since July 2013.

Back in July, Governor Matt Mead appointed nine members to form a lottery board.

For now, residents in eastern Wyoming are making their way to Nebraska to buy tickets for tonight's Mega Million jackpot drawing.

One Torrington resident says he hopes laws will change in order to benefit his state.

"I hear other people that talk about it that really would like to have a lotto program in the state of Wyoming." Said Mark Munoz. "Because it would benefit the whole state. Certain counties that don't really get a lot of funding from the state government. So this will help be like a supplemental income."

Wyoming lottery board officials say they are hoping residents will be able to buy lotto tickets in the state by January 2014.
