A Wyoming PowerballⓇ winner from Mills, Wyoming, scored $100,000 in the Wednesday, February 22nd drawing. WyoLottoⓇ officials announced that Curtis Reid bought the winning ticket the day before at the Maverik in Green River, Wyoming.

Reid didn’t hit the $435 million jackpot like the winner in Indiana, but he did double his money by choosing the Power PlayⓇ and boosting his winning ticket from $50,000 to $100,000. Reid purchased his winning ticket when he traveled through Green River as a truck driver for the Food Bank of the Rockies, a program that supplies food to hunger relief agencies throughout Wyoming.

Reid says he has won money from the lottery before, but said he was excited to see this winning ticket because, “There are a couple more zeros this time!”

Reid had an inkling that he may be a winner while listening to the radio and realizing the jackpot-winning ticket shared some of the same numbers as his ticket. He remembers thinking, “I have some of those numbers, I’d better check this out.” After plugging in his numbers four times using WyoLotto’s online number checker, Reid said, “I couldn’t believe it, I was pretty shocked!”

Reid plans to pay off his motorcycle and get a new car. The winnings will also allow him to tour Wyoming and travel by motorcycle to Minnesota this summer.

WyoLotto offers four unique draw games including Cowboy DrawTM , Lucky for LifeⓇ, Mega MillionsⓇ, and Powerball. Wyoming has celebrated 1,987,714 winners across the state for all four games, and players have brought home $29,191,618 in total winnings since WyoLotto launched in August 2014, according to Lottery officials.
