Wyoming to start selling Mega Millions, Powerball tickets on August 24

CHEYENNE, Wyom. - Two lottery outlets in northern Colorado expect business to slow down, but not dry up, when Wyoming begins selling Mega Millions and Powerball tickets this month.

Tickets go on sale in Wyoming on Aug. 24 under a 2013 law passed by the Legislature.

The Wyoming Tribune-Eagle reported Sunday the Borderline Cantina and Stateline Oasis in northern Colorado will still have games that aren't available in Wyoming.

They include the instant gratification of scratch tickets and games that offer smaller jackpots but better odds than Mega Millions and Powerball.

The Borderline and Stateline are just 10 miles south of Cheyenne, Wyoming, and have been the top two Colorado Lottery retailers for years.

A Cheyenne man won $1.9 million last month with a Colorado lottery ticket he bought at the Borderline.
