The Powerball jackpot was hit in Kansas on Saturday night for the first time since 2012! The winning numbers in the November 19 Powerball drawing were 7 – 28 – 62 – 63 – 64 Powerball 10. The grand prize jackpot in the drawing was $92,900,000 for the annuity option or $47,309,601 for the cash option.
The winning ticket was sold in Northeast Kansas. This region includes the following counties: Marshall, Nemaha, Brown, Doniphan, Riley, Pottawatomie, Jackson, Atchison, Geary, Wabaunsee, Shawnee, Jefferson, Leavenworth, Wyandotte, Johnson, Osage, Douglas, Franklin, Miami, Morris, and the northern half of Lyon counties.
In Kansas, winners have the option to remain anonymous when claiming a prize. This prevents the store that the winning ticket was sold in being announced until after the prize is claimed for security purposes. The retailer is eligible for a selling bonus for selling the winning ticket.
“The Kansas Lottery had the pleasure of making someone out there a little more thankful this week,” said Kansas Lottery Executive Director Stephen Durrell. “We are thrilled for our winner, as nothing makes us happier than giving away a big jackpot to our players.”
The Kansas Lottery will be available for media inquiries during operational hours this week. As a reminder, it is a holiday week, and the Lottery will be closed on Thursday and Friday for Thanksgiving.
