The Wyoming Lottery Corp. has announced that effective May 21, it is now accepting applications from Wyoming retail business owners who want to sell Powerball® and Mega Millions® tickets at their retail locations.

"Making the retailer application available at 10 a.m. this morning is an exciting step that brings us that much closer to selling Powerball and Mega Millions tickets when the Wyoming Lottery goes live on August 24th," said Jon Clontz, Wyoming Lottery's Chief Executive Officer.

Clontz notes that due to the volume of detailed information required of retail business owners, completing the application will probably take 30 minutes or more."

The Wyoming Lottery is slated to begin selling Powerball and Mega Millions tickets on August 24.
