HARTFORD, Conn. (WIBW) -- If you play the Kansas Lottery's Lucky for Life game, you should check your tickets as soon as you can. Lottery officials say a ticket sold right here in northeast Kansas has won $1,000 a day for the rest of their days.

That lone ticket matched all the numbers in last night's drawing. The winning numbers are:

3-31-42-45-48 Lucky Ball: 17

The Kansas Lottery says this is the first time someone in the Sunflower State has won the grand prize since the state joined the game in November 2016. Since that time, two Kansans have won the second prize - $25,000 year for life.

The holder of the winning ticket can collect the $1,000 a day for life or they can cash out with a one-time payment of $5.75 million.
