Pw72,

Interesting about NV. I had no idea.

I heard a few weeks ago that WY was adding something. I can't remember what it was: Casino, Lottery or something else I can't remember. It may be worth searching if locals are interested.

I thought it was cool the ER nurses from St. John's in Jackson Hole buying the winning ticket in 8B County.wasn't it something like a Million?

Wyoming gambles on lottery to increase revenues « basinrepublican-rustler.com

I read this article, and it seems this is only allows Wyoming to join the big national games, and start its own state draw game, but no scratch tickets. I wonder if there is even a big enough population to do a state draw game, if so, the jackpots would likely be small. However, there are other multi-state lotteries like Hot Lotto Sizzler (Idaho and many northern plain states), that they could join. Turns out Wyoming was tired of residents driving into Colorado to spend on the lottery. Idaho doesn't need to worry about that, because Utah is unlikely to allow any sort of gambling in the near or far future.

Default Cheers Music Commercials

I was glad to see the words for the commercial, which utilizes the music from Cheers. I knew I had to be confused of what the words were. I know what they sounded -like to someone doing something else.
I believe Idaho wants people to buy tickets to the Cheers Game

After the couple in Rigby won $250,000 a couple of weeks ago, who knows?

Question Any Changes

Are there any changes since we last reviewed ID and bordering states? I'm still glad I saw the words to one of the tickets easily found in many C stores. Maybe I need to get my hearing checked It simply was a game I'd not heard of previously and I misunderstood one word.

For the pros here, pw72 or Cleosmom, anything either of you would like to add?

I know this could go under concerts but not as well as they aren't local. I might be wrong about this, but it seems to me the casinos are bringing in bigger concerts to Jackpot, Wendover and even Ft. Hall - AKA Bannock Shoshone.
What do you think?
