    This is poorly written. WyoLotto had thousands of applications. Porters was one of them. They only picked 550 businesses. Criteria was, business volume, location (I-80 corrodor etc), door rings, etc. Thousands of retailers and venues are disappointed today because they were NOT picked. It wasn't because they were lazy. As WyoLotto grows, perhaps there will be more businesses chosen. But the 550 number was set. A person can still sign up to sell WyoLotto, However, another criteria was first come-first chosen. All applications were handled on-line and a time & date was set to recive them.

    Can anyone say, Poor Planning? How the hell are you going to sell the tickets if you don't have vendors? Two vendors in Riverton, come on!!

    I also need to comment on the "chains" not sure how they will be handled. I mean, Wall-Mart, Wall-greens, Casino's, Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks. These are "special" and will have there own criteria. go to http://www.wyolotto.com with questions. So many issues with the Lottery that "With one month to go before WyoLotto begins play, only seven Fremont County retailers have signed up to be a lottery outlet to date" Is not a valid statement and is derogatory. The fact is Many businesses are disappointed in these results.

    This is interesting news. Thanks Porters for giving us the correct story. I am a business owner in Riverton and would love to have the lottery available.
