Kansas Lottery players are hoping for more than candy in their bags this Halloween as the estimated Powerball jackpot for tonight’s drawing has reached the $1 billion mark, with a cash option of $497.3 million.
This is the second largest Powerball jackpot and the fifth largest US lottery jackpot of all time! The Powerball jackpot was last hit on August 3 in Pennsylvania. Since then, there have been 37 Powerball drawings in a row without a grand prize winner.
Recently, Powerball has produced some big wins in Kansas! In the Saturday, October 22 drawing, one lucky player in Northeast Kansas won $50,000. Additionally, a previous $50,000 winning ticket was sold in South Central Kansas for the October 15 drawing!
Powerball draws every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. Tickets start at just $2, and players can add the Power Play multiplier to their tickets for an extra $1. For more information, see the Kansas Lottery website.
Players are invited to submit all their winning and non-winning tickets in the Kansas Lottery PlayOn® Players Loyalty program to earn points for drawing entries and a chance to win cash and other prizes! PlayOn® is a registered trademark of Pollard Banknote Limited used under license.
