LAS VEGAS (Las Vegas Sun) -- Las Vegans making the 40-minute drive south to Primm to buy lottery tickets will have a new game to play starting next year.

The Primm Valley Lotto Store announced Wednesday that it will begin selling Powerball tickets beginning April 8. The California Lottery Commission approved the game in a meeting late last month.

“We are very excited to offer the Powerball lottery at Primm Valley, as it is not only one of the most recognized lottery games in the country, but it has both tremendous drawing power and a loyal following,” Loren Gill, executive vice president and general manager of Primm Valley Casino Resorts, said in a statement.

Last month, two winners — one from suburban Phoenix — split a $587.5 million Powerball jackpot.

Primm is the go-to destination for many Las Vegas lottery players wanting tickets for popular games like Mega Millions, because the lottery is not played in Nevada.

When the Powerball jackpot rose above $500 million last month, the closest place Las Vegans could buy the $2 tickets was in Arizona.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
