It turned out to be a winning weekend for Kansas Lottery players across Kansas, with prizes won in Powerball, Holiday Millionaire Raffle, and 2by2!
No one won the record $635 million Powerball jackpot from Saturday night’s drawing, but two Kansans did match four numbers and the Powerball to win $50,000! One prize each was sold in Northeast and North Central Kansas. The winning numbers on October 2, 2021, were 28 – 38 – 42 – 47 – 52 Powerball 1 and PowerPlay 2X.
The next Powerball drawing is Monday, October 4, featuring a jackpot of $685 million (cash option of $485.5 million) after it was raised from $670 million on Monday morning! This jackpot has been on a roll since early June and is the sixth highest jackpot in Powerball history and the eighth highest jackpot in U.S. lottery history! Draw days are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Players have until 8:59 p.m. Central Time on draw days to purchase tickets.
Then on Sunday evening, the first Early Bird prize of $30,000 was drawn for the Holiday Millionaire Raffle game! The winning number is 042201. The winning ticket, which was sold in Northwest Kansas, must exactly match the number to claim the prize. The next Early Bird drawing is November 7 and with more than 40 percent of the 150,000 tickets already sold, you’ll want to get yours before they’re gone!
Lastly, in the 2by2 game, one Kansan in South Central is also waking up to some cash from the Sunday evening drawing! The player’s ticket matched all four numbers to win the top prize of $22,000! The winning numbers in the 2by2 drawing on October 3 are Red 3–21 and White 20–23.
