There is no word on who the winner is as of Sunday afternoon as the Kansas Lottery allows players to remain anonymous.

  • 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 counties.

The website noted that the winner also has a $47.3 million cash option.

“The Kansas Lottery had the pleasure of making someone out there a little more thankful this week,” said Kansas Lottery Executive Director Stephen Durrell. “We are thrilled for our winner, as nothing makes us happier than giving away a big jackpot to our players.”

The Lottery noted that the winning numbers for the Nov. 19 Powerball were 7-28-62-63-64 and Powerball 10. It said this was the first winning jackpot in the Sunflower State since 2012.
