How to Play
Players who want to purchase a 2by2 ticket in Wyoming have to be at least 18 years old. If you are, get that dollar ready and follow the instructions below:
- Find your 2by2 retailer — If you don’t know where to buy your 2by2 ticket, visit the WhoLotto website to locate licensed retail shops across the state.
- Visit a retail shop in Wyoming — Once you find out where the nearest licensed retailer is, visit the shop and ask the clerk for a 2by2 ticket.
- Choose your numbers — Create your payslip by selecting two red numbers from 1 to 26 and two white numbers from the same range. Another option is to ask your retailer for a 2by2 Quick Pick, and they’ll have the lottery terminal choose those four random numbers for you.
- Check the numbers and pay for the ticket — Once you’ve created your payslip, it’s time to pay for it. You can put up to five plays on a single payslip, each costing you $1.
- Sign your ticket — When the retailer hands you the printed ticket, make sure that you sign the back and provide the necessary details. This will help you out in case you lose the winning ticket or it gets stolen.
When filling out the ticket, you need to mark the numbers either with a pencil or blue/black
ink. In case you make a mistake, do not erase anything from the ticket. Simply mark the Void box.
One great feature you can use when playing Wyoming 2by2 lottery is to mark the Multidraw box and play the same numbers for two, three, seven, 14, 21, 28, 35, or 42 consecutive drawings. You can also tell the clerk how many drawings you’d like to participate in if you don’t fill out the payslip yourself.
Finally, if you decide to participate in seven consecutive draws, you’ll earn entry to the 2by2 Tuesday feature. This will double all the 2by2 prizes, meaning that the Grand Prize will be $44,000.
WY 2by2 Drawing Schedule
The 2by2 draws in Wyoming are held daily around 8:30 PM Mountain Time. You can buy your tickets until 7:30 PM MT on the day of the draw. Tickets purchased after this time will be automatically carried over to the next day’s draw.
Payouts, Odds, and Rules
The biggest 2by2 prize is $22,000, and to win it, you’ll have to match two red and two white numbers. For matching three out of four numbers, be it two red and one white or vice versa, you’ll get $100. Match two numbers for a $3 prize, with a single number match bringing you a free 2by2 ticket.
If you win more than one free play payslip, up to five will all be added to the same ticket. Per single draw, the maximum winning amount is $220,000, which is the amount of the Grand Prize for ten players. On Tuesdays, this amount will double, and it’ll be $440,000. If there are more than ten Grand Prize winners on the same day, the prizes will be distributed on a pari-mutuel basis – so the jackpot can sometimes be less than advertised.
Here’s the table with individual odds and prize amounts:
|Numbers Matched||Prize||2by2 Tuesday Prize||Odds of Winning|
|2 red balls + 2 white balls||$22,000 Grand Prize*||$44,000 Grand Prize*||1:105,625|

|1 red ball + 1 white ball||$3||$6||1 in 45.8|
|1 red ball||Free ticket||2 free tickets||1:8|
