The Kansas Lottery


In 1986, 64% of Kansas voters approved amendments to the state constitution to allow state-run lotteries. This would lead the legislature to pass a 1987 bill that established the Kansas State Lottery. Since its inception, the KSL was meant to add revenue streams to the state’s coffers.

58.2% of proceeds are given back to Kansas Lottery winners, with 27.5% going to the state. Administrative and sales costs take up 8.5% of revenues, and retailers get another 5.8%.


In its more than 33 years of history, the lottery in Kansas has generated billions in revenues. Almost $1.8 billion have gone towards economic development, education, and other crucial programs.


The KSL is also part of several multi-jurisdictional games, dating back to 1988. That year, the lotto joined the LottoAmerica draw game. Four years later, the Kansas Lottery Powerball followed. By 2010, Mega Millions tickets were available as well.

These days, the KSL offers a broad range of instant games, including pull tabs and scratchers. For draw games, there are in-house daily drawings, in-house jackpot drawings, and several multi-jurisdictional games.


Who Won the Biggest Kansas Lottery?


The largest jackpot ever won through the KSL was a $158 million prize in March of 2012. It was one-third of a massive $656 million Mega Millions jackpot, split between Illinois, Kansas, and Maryland.


Unlike many other states, KS doesn’t require lotto winners to reveal their identity. While the identity of the Illinois and Maryland winners was disclosed, the Kansas winner remains anonymous.


What Channel Is the Kansas Lottery On?


If you want to catch results of Kansas Lottery drawings live, then tune into your local newscast. In Dodge City, Ulysses, Garden City, Sublette, and Liberal, KDGL Channel 23 carries the broadcast. For the KC Metro area, Kansas Lottery results are broadcast by WDAF-TV Fox 4.

If you miss the Kansas Lottery winning numbers, then you can always check the newspaper. While the KSL has its own YouTube channel, it doesn’t broadcast drawings.


Instead, players can use the official Kansas Lottery app. With the Kansas Lottery ticket scanner, checking for winners is easier than ever.


How to Win the Kansas Lottery?

To win the KS lotto, you’ll need to overcome the odds. Those odds change a lot from game to game, though. Check them out below.


What Are the Odds of Winning the Kansas Lottery?

Super Kansas Cash has odds ranging from 1:29 (for $1 prizes) to 1:2,517,200 (for the jackpot). 2by 2 odds fall between 1:8 and 1:105,625 for the top prize.

For Kansas Lottery scratch games, odds of any cash prize are about 1:4. However, the jackpot odds for Lucky for Life sit at 1 in 30,821,472.

Lotto America jackpot odds are at 1 in 25,989,600. Furthermore, the Powerball jackpot odds are 1 in 292,201,338. For the Kansas Lottery Mega Millions, you’ll have a 1 in 302,575,350 chance of winning.


How to Play the Kansas Lottery?

To play the KSL, you’ll need to head on over to your nearest lotto retailer. Tickets aren’t sold over the internet, so you can only buy them in person. Once you have your ticket, if it’s an instant game, reveal your prizes and cash them in.

If, however, you’re playing draw games instead, then you’ll need to wait for the next drawing to take place.


When and What time is the Kansas Lottery Drawing?

2by2 drawings happen every day, at 9:30 PM. Super Cash drawings are on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays at 9:10 PM. Meanwhile, Pick 3 drawings are daily, at 1:10 PM and 9:10 PM.

Powerball drawings are on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9:59 PM. Conversely, Mega Millions drawings take place on Tuesdays and Fridays at 10 PM.

The Kansas Lottery Lucky for Life drawings are Mondays and Thursdays, at 9:38 PM. Finally, Lotto America drawings are on Wednesdays and Saturdays, at 10 PM.


How Does the Second Chance Kansas Lottery Work?

When your Kansas Lottery numbers fail to hit, it doesn’t have to be the end of the road. You can enter the Player’s Club website or use the KSL app to find the Kansas Lottery Second Chance drawings.

Use your non-winning tickets as Kansas Lottery codes for a new chance to win amazing prizes.


What Is a Kansas Lottery Voucher?

There are various promotional campaigns by the KSL. These include exclusive vouchers that can be redeemed for rewards, such as instant scratchers, draw game tickets, or bonus cash.


How to Cash in Lottery Tickets Kansas?

If you’ve won a prize with the KSL, then you’ll need to claim it. Sign the back of your ticket and visit your nearest retailer. However, if the prize is over $600, then you’ll have to visit a lotto claims center. A list of locations is available at the top of this page.
