It’s time to kick off a new week with another Powerball drawing, and tonight’s jackpot is massive! The estimated jackpot for tonight’s Powerball drawing is $480 million, with a cash option of $242.2 million. Powerball has been rolling since it was last hit in Pennsylvania on August 3 for $206.9 million.
Powerball tickets start at just $2 and are available at every Kansas Lottery retailer. Players can add the Power Play multiplier to their ticket to multiply their winnings up to 5X for an extra $1 per play.
Kansas has seen some nice Powerball wins in October, with a $50,000 winning ticket sold in Southwest Kansas on October 5, and another $50,000 winning ticket sold in South Central Kansas on October 15.
Powerball isn’t the only game popular in the Sunflower State this week. The Kansas Lottery’s annual Holiday Millionaire Raffle began on September 1, and it is already over halfway sold out as 4pm on Sunday, October 16!
The Holiday Millionaire Raffle gives players their best odds to win $1 million, with only 150,000 tickets available in the game. One ticket sold will be the top prize winner, but there are lots of other prizes available to win in the game as well! See the full prize breakdown on the Kansas Lottery website here.
There’s already been one big winner in the Holiday Millionaire Raffle this year as well! Mona Cramer of Salina won $30,000 in the first of three Early Bird drawings, with the next drawings occurring on November 6 and December 4.
