In Kansas, the lucky ticket holder has 365 days from the date of the drawing to claim the $25,000 a year for life prize.

This is the second $25,000 a year for life prize won in Kansas since the Kansas Lottery joined the game in November 2016. Darryl “DJ” Hestand of Olathe claimed the first $25,000 a year for life prize from the April 10 Lucky for Life drawing.
