CHEYENNE (WNE) — WyoLotto has announced a new game coming to Wyoming this summer.
The Ragtime Raffle will only be available for a short amount of time, from June 9 to July 27 or until 100,000 tickets are sold. For only $20 a ticket, players will have a shot at $1 million in total prizes: a grand prize of $750,000, plus three $75,000 prizes and five $5,000 prizes along the way. Players must keep their tickets to claim any of the prizes, and winners of the smaller-tier prizes will still stay in the running for the grand prize of $750,000.
Tickets will be available at all WyoLotto retailers. WyoLotto also will tour Wyoming and sell tickets at Cody’s Nite Rodeo, Casper’s College National Finals Rodeo, Evanston’s Wyoming Downs, Laramie’s Jubilee Days and Cheyenne Frontier Days.
WyoLotto spokesman Bart Henyan noted that since rodeos are such a major part of Wyoming culture, the organization wanted to embody the “ragtime excitement, theatrics, music and culture.”

“We think it pairs well with rodeos and rodeo culture,” he said.
“The music events and Western experiences are synonymous with rodeos. Since there are so many rodeo events throughout the state, it gives our team the opportunity to visit these towns and be a part of the events and see our players all over the state.”
WyoLotto hasn’t launched a new game since Lucky for Life, so they wanted to introduce a new game to players this year.
