TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNW) – Kansas has a new millionaire following last night’s Powerball drawing according to the Kansas Lottery.
One ticket matched the first five Powerball numbers, but not the Powerball to win the $1 million cash prize.
The winning numbers in the August 24 Powerball drawing are 9-11-25-64-65 Powerball 16.
The winning ticket was sold in southwest Kansas, which includes the following 24 counties: Greeley, Wichita, Scott, Lane, Ness, Rush, Hamilton, Kearny, Finney, Hodgeman, Pawnee, Stanton, Grant, Haskell, Gray, Ford, Edwards, Kiowa, Morton, Stevens, Seward, Meade, Clark and Comanche.
Players have 365 days from the date of a drawing to claim Powerball and other draw game prizes. Since no tickets matched all numbers in the August 24 Powerball drawing, the estimated jackpot for Saturday night’s drawing is $142 million, with a cash option of $98.1 million.
