An unknown Mega Millions player in Southeast Kansas has been showered with a $40,000 win from Friday night’s drawing! The lucky ticket matched four numbers and the Mega Ball to win a $10,000 prize, but because the player added on the Megaplier option for just an extra $1, they were able to multiply the prize to nab $40,000! The winning numbers on April 16, 2021, were 17 – 27 – 28 – 50 – 55 Mega Ball 25 and Megaplier 4.
The Southeast Kansas region includes the following counties: Chase, Lyon (southern half), Coffey, Anderson, Linn, Greenwood, Woodson, Allen, Bourbon, Elk, Wilson, Neosho, Crawford, Chautauqua, Montgomery, Labette, and Cherokee.
The next Mega Millions drawing is Tuesday, April 20, with an estimated jackpot of $257 million. Players have until 8:59 p.m. Central Time on draw days to purchase tickets.
Mega Millions offers nine ways to win and if you Megaply, you could win $5 million without even hitting the jackpot! Tickets start at just $2 to play.
