A lucky Kansas Lottery player is holding a Powerball ticket worth $1 million! The player matched the first five Powerball numbers in the June 30 drawing, winning the cash prize.
The winning numbers were 07-15-20-41-44 Powerball 22.
The lucky ticket was purchased in south central Kansas, which includes the following counties: Barton, Rice, McPherson, Marion, Stafford, Reno, Harvey, Pratt, Kingman, Sedgwick, Butler, Barber, Harper, Sumner and Cowley.
This is Kansas' second Powerball Match 5 $1 million prize under the game's new prize structure, which began January 15, 2012. The first Match 5 $1 million prize was claimed in April by a Topeka resident who wished to remain anonymous.
Since no one hit the jackpot on June 30, Powerball continues to climb for the July 4 drawing. The estimated annuity jackpot is worth $60 million with a cash option of $39.7 million. Powerball is played in 42 States, Washington D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
