CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A record $1.8 million jackpot has been hit in the Wyoming Lottery’s Cowboy Draw game.

The winning WyoLotto ticket was purchased on Jan. 26 at a truck stop south of Cheyenne. It is the second jackpot of more than $1 million in the Cowboy Draw game.

The winner of the latest jackpot has chosen to remain anonymous, but a news release from WyoLotto indicated it was a man from the Denver area who had driven up to Cheyenne to explore Cheyenne Frontier Days. It says he had never played the Cowboy Draw game before.

The Cowboy Draw game was launched in March 2015 as the first state lottery game playable only in Wyoming, paying out an estimated $8 million, including seven jackpots.
