Wyomingites flock across state line for Powerball - Billings Gazette




CHEYENNE — Wyoming residents flocked to Colorado to buy Powerball
tickets in hope of winning the record $587 million jackpot.

Powerball officials said Thursday that jackpot-winning tickets were
sold in Missouri and Arizona but not in any of the Powerball states
neighboring Wyoming.

Wyoming doesn’t have a lottery and is one of just a handful of states
that also don’t participate in the two big multistate lotteries,
Powerball and Mega Millions.

Thousands of Wyoming residents drove to Colorado’s top-selling
lottery retailer just over the state line, about 12 miles south of
Cheyenne.

A Colorado lottery official estimated that ticket sales at the
Borderline Cantina store were up six-fold over usual sales.
