The Kansas Lottery is urging its players to check their Lucky for Life tickets after one ticket winning a player $25,000 a Year for Life was sold in northeast Kansas!
The lucky player matched the first five numbers, but not the Lucky Ball. The winning numbers in Thursday’s drawing were 3-4-8-16-27 with a Lucky Ball of 3.
The northeast region of Kansas includes the following counties: Marshall, Nemaha, Brown, Doniphan, Riley, Pottawatomie, Jackson, Atchison, Geary, Wabaunsee, Shawnee, Jefferson, Leavenworth, Wyandotte, Johnson, Osage, Douglas, Franklin, Miami, Morris and the northern half of Lyon.
The ticket holder has 365 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize. Once the ticket is claimed, the winner then has 60 days from the claim date to decide if they want to take the $25,000 a Year for Life annuity payment option or the cash option of $390,000.
This is the fourth time a $25,000 a Year for Life prize was won in the Sunflower State since the Kansas Lottery joined the Lucky for Life game in November 2016.
To play Lucky for Life, players pick five numbers from 1-48 and a Lucky Ball number from 1-18.
Lucky for Life drawings take place every Monday and Thursday. Players have until 7:59 p.m. on draw days to purchase tickets.
Players are invited to submit all their winning and non-winning tickets in the Kansas Lottery PlayOn® Players Loyalty program to earn points for drawing entries and a chance to win cash and other prizes!
