TOPEKA (KSNT) – Kansas lottery officials confirm another ticket worth $1 million was purchased in Kansas over the weekend.
Cory Thone with the Kansas Lottery said in a press release that a ticket for the Powerball worth $1 million was sold in the northeast Kansas area. The winner of the prize, a Johnson County resident, stepped forward to claim the cash on Oct. 10. The winning numbers were 47, 54, 57, 60, 65 and red Powerball 19.
This news comes as the national Powerball jackpot prize reaches more than $1.5 billion. In late September, another $1 million Powerball ticket was sold in south central Kansas. In addition to this new $1 million prize winner, Thone said three other tickets sold also won $50,000 with two in northeast Kansas and one in southeast Kansas.
The last Powerball jackpot reached more than $1 billion in the summer of 2023. The winner of the prize, which ultimately reached an estimated $1.602 billion, recently stepped forward to claim the money in Florida.
Earlier this year, several Kansans won big prizes through the lottery. A Kansan from Johnson County who drew a winning $92 million jackpot ticket in 2022 claimed the winnings in January, 2023.
