Back in 2011, Wyoming was one of seven states that did not have a lottery. That changed in 2013 when House Bill 77 passed through the Wyoming State Legislature and was subsequently signed into law by Republican Governor Matt Mead.

It took years for the state, which has three casinos (Wind River Casino, Little Wind Casino, and Shoshone Rose Casino – all in Fremont County), to enact a lottery, which suggests they’re a long way off from any serious iGaming movement. In fact, about the only development in that regard was Wyoming Attorney General Peter Michael signing onto the Internet Gambling Control Act, which seeks federal prohibition of online poker.

Wyoming isn’t on the iGaming radar, though the state’s small population means it wouldn’t be a big player even if it was.
