Weekend Jackpots are Rolling - $353 Million Mega Millions
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
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.
