Record Kansas Lottery Sales

Associated Press - January 14, 2016 8:25 am

The frenzy over the largest Powerball jackpot in history paid off for the state of Kansas.

Kansas Lottery officials say sales for the Wednesday’s Powerball drawing were a record $9.68 million. The previous record was $6.77 million, set just last Saturday.

Lottery spokeswoman Sally Lunsford says the state recorded $5.31 million in sales in Kansas on Wednesday alone.

Three winning tickets were sold for Wednesday’s Powerball but none were in Kansas. However, two $1 million Powerball winning tickets were sold in the state, one in the southwest and one in south central Kansas.
