Kansas Lottery players across the state won some big prizes this weekend, with wins in Powerball and Mega Millions!
On Friday, two Mega Millions players in South Central doubled their wins after adding on the Megaplier option. One ticket matched four numbers and the Mega Ball to win $10,000, but with the Megaplier addition, that prize was doubled to $20,000!
Another player in the area matched four numbers but not the Mega Ball to win $500, but with a doubled prize from the Megaplier, ended up winning $1,000! The winning numbers on August 13, 2021, were 17 – 21 – 35 – 40 – 53 Mega Ball 11 and Megaplier 2. The next drawing is Tuesday, August 17, with an estimated jackpot of $242 million!
