CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Lottery, which began operating with two multi-state games less than five months ago, plans to announce an in-state game this week.

Lottery CEO Jon Clontz says he’ll release details about the weekly, state-based game on Friday. He tells the Wyoming Tribune Eagle (http://bit.ly/1Bbd2xM) it will have a minimum jackpot of $250,000.

Clontz says the lottery plans to add two more games this summer, including a Pick 3 game.

He says residents have been asking about scratch games, but they were excluded from the 2013 law that allowed for the creation of the lottery. Any changes would be in the hands of lawmakers.

Clontz says Wyoming lottery outlets have sold more than $6.5 million worth of tickets since Aug. 24, with individual players winning just over $843,000 - a 13 percent return.
