CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - No one has hit the jackpot in the new Cowboy Draw lottery game.

The Wyoming Lottery says the jackpot in the state game has hit $475,000.

A drawing will be held Thursday.

The Cowboy Draw game was launched on March 15. Since then, 58 players have won a $1,000 each.

The game is similar to the national Powerball and Mega Millions games except that Cowboy Draw tickets are only sold in Wyoming.

The in-state game offers better odds for winning because players are not competing against millions of people nationwide.
