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.
