TOPEKA, KAN. – It was a big night for Kansas Powerball players! One ticket sold in northwest Kansas is worth $1,000,000 after matching the first five numbers, but not the Powerball, in last night’s drawing. Two other tickets, both sold in northeast Kansas, matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball, to be worth $10,000 each.
Counting all wins, from matching just the Powerball, to matching the first five numbers, Kansas has more than 31,000 winners in the August 7 drawing. All players should carefully check their tickets. The winning numbers are: 5-25-30-58-59 Powerball 32.
The $1,000,000 Powerball win is the third in Kansas in the past few weeks. On July 20, Nelson Worley of Osawatomie matched the first five numbers in Powerball to win $1,000,000. A week later, on July 27, an Overland Park resident also matched the first five numbers to win $1,000,000.
Three Powerball tickets, two sold in New Jersey and one in Minnesota, matched all numbers last night to split a $448.4 million jackpot. The cash option is $258.16 million. The Powerball jackpot returns to $40 million for Saturday’s drawing.
