CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Eighteen people have won $1,000 each in Wyoming’s new in-state lottery game.

The Cowboy Draw game’s first drawing on Monday had 9,750 winning tickets, totaling more than $77,000.

The Cowboy Draw game was launched on March 15. Tickets are sold only in Wyoming, giving players better chances of winning.

The other Wyoming Lottery games, Powerball and Mega Millions, are national games with long odds of winning.

The Cowboy Draw jackpot now climbs to $325,000 for the next drawing on Thursday.
