First Lotto America Drawing held Wednesday; Kansas Lottery Players Win $20,635 in Cash Prizes!

Thousands of Kansas Lottery players tried their luck with a new game last night! Sales for the new Lotto AmericaSM game began last Sunday, November 12, with the first drawing being held Wednesday, November 15.  Although no tickets matched all numbers in last night's Lotto America drawing to win the $15 million jackpot, Kansas Lottery players did win a total of $20,635 in other cash prizes! 

The winning numbers in the first Lotto America drawing are 2-9-18-31-39 Star Ball 9, and the All Star Bonus number was 4. The estimated Lotto America jackpot for Saturday night's drawing rolled to $15.15 million, with a cash option of $9.6 million.  

Lotto America drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday, and the game offers nine ways to win. Plays cost $1 a play, or $2 if the player purchases the All Star BonusSM option, which multiplies any prize won by up to five times (except for the jackpot).
