Four Kansas Lottery players have won a trip any "Trekkie" would envy. They're headed for a Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas!

The Star Trek promotion started October 1, 2017 with the launch of the $5 Star Trek instant scratch game.  Kansas Lottery PlayOn® Players Loyalty program members submitted their non-winning Star Trek tickets to earn entries into the second-chance drawing. There were 27,164 entries submitted.

The four lucky grand prize winners are:

  1. David Howell of Wichita
  2. Alfredo Partida of Garnett
  3. Steve Martin of Council Grove
  4. Joyce McKenzie of Independence 

Each grand prize winner and a guest will receive two tickets to the Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada; round-trip airfare; five-night hotel accommodations at the Rio Suites Hotel; roundtrip car service to and from the hotel and airport; $1,000 cash; and mandatory state and federal income withholding taxes.
