Weekend Jackpots are Rolling - $353 Million Mega Millions Jackpot!

Kansas Lottery players will attempt to capture the fifth largest Mega Millions jackpot ever tonight. Any ticket that matches all numbers in the drawing will win or share a jackpot worth an estimated $353 million ($194 million cash option).

The Mega Millions jackpot was last hit on January 3, 2014, when a ticket in Tennessee matched all numbers and won $61 million.  March 14 will be the 20th drawing since then. The largest Mega Millions jackpot ever was $656 million, shared by players in three states, including Kansas. The Kansas winning ticket was sold in Ottawa for the March 30, 2012 drawing.

Players can purchase tickets at any of the approximately 1,800 Kansas Lottery retail locations throughout the state.  There will also be a special Lottery selling location just outside the Celtic Fox in downtown Topeka Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., coinciding with the St. Patrick's Day parade and other festivities.

Other multi-state jackpots for the weekend include an estimated $70 million Powerball jackpot ($39.5 cash option) and a $4.41 million Hot Lotto jackpot. In the Kansas-only Super Kansas Cash game, the jackpot is an estimated $170,000. Powerball, Hot Lotto and Super Kansas Cash will all be drawn Saturday night.

Players can have winning numbers sent to them after every drawing by joining the free Kansas Lottery Players Club.  You must be 18 to play Kansas Lottery games or to join the Kansas Lottery Players Club.
