Who will be the first Powerball Jackpot Winner of 2017?

The first Powerball jackpot winner of 2017 could take home the 12th largest jackpot in Powerball history.  The Powerball jackpot for Saturday, February 18, is an estimated $349 million with an estimated cash value of $213.1 million.

Saturday's drawing will be the 18th drawing since the Powerball jackpot was hit in Delaware on December 17, 2016 for $121.6 million. Although there have been no jackpot winners in 2017; in the last week, 10 players have won at least $1 million - the most of any week this calendar year. 

The Kansas-only Super Kansas Cash jackpot also continues to grow, with an estimated $1.305 million now up for grabs Saturday. The Super Kansas Cash jackpot was last hit September 21, 2016 by a Prairie Village resident who took home $3.16 million, minus taxes.

Hot Lotto, which is played in 15 states, has an estimated $4.06 million jackpot for Saturday night. The Mega Millions drawing is tonight, and any player who matches all numbers will win or share a jackpot estimated at $46 million with a cash option of $27.7 million.

The Kansas Lottery reminds its players to submit their winning and non-winning tickets in the new Kansas Lottery PlayOn® Players Loyalty program to earn points for drawing entries and a chance to win cash and other prizes!
