Lottery players are excited about the very large jackpots up for

matches all numbers in tomorrow night's Mega Millions drawing will win
or share a $119 million jackpot.

split between players in Arizona and Missouri in November 2012.
A Kansas player won a third of the record $656 million Mega
Millions jackpot in March 2012.

Kansas-only game, has also rolled. The jackpot for Saturday is an
estimated $980,000. Two tickets, one sold in northeast Kansas and the
other in south central

$2,000 each. The winning numbers are 3-6-9-11-13 Cashball 11.
The Kansas Lottery encourages all players to sign the back of
their tickets and keep them in a safe place before the
drawings. Players must be 18 to purchase tickets.
