The Wyoming Lottery announced today that it anticipates selling Powerball and Mega Millions tickets beginning Aug. 24.

The start date for the lottery came as state officials said they would begin taking applications for retail outlets to sell the tickets beginning May 21.

Many shops in Evanston, on the Utah-Wyoming border, have expressed interest in selling lottery tickets. The Evanston Chamber of Commerce anticipates more Utahns crossing the border, because it is less of a drive than to Idaho, which also sells lottery tickets.
