SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming has begun selling Powerball and Mega Millions tickets at nearly 400 retailers across the state.

Lottery officials say the first ticket was sold to Mary Ogg, a 67-year-old grandmother from Sheridan who doesn’t normally enter games of chance. Ogg beat out more than 27,000 people for the chance to buy the first ticket in the new Wyoming Lottery as well as a new car in the promotional event.

She bought her ticket Sunday at a convenience store in Sheridan where she normally buys gas. After Ogg made her purchase, the rest of the approved outlets around the state began selling tickets.

The lottery is expected to net about $6 million a year for Wyoming after expenses and prizes. The first $6 million of proceeds will go to local governments, and anything above that goes to a state school fund.
