CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Lottery has turned over its second payment this year to the state.

The lottery transferred more than $915,000 of its profits on Wednesday.

In April, the WyoLotto handed over more than $1 million.

The lottery shares its revenue with the state quarterly. The amount depends on the lottery’s profits, which vary quarter to quarter. Proceeds are distributed among the state’s cities, towns and counties.

The lottery started selling tickets in Wyoming in August 2014. Its initial profits were used to pay private loans taken out to set up the operation.
