TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – The Kansas Lottery says someone in northeast Kansas won a record Super Kansas Cash jackpot.
The winner matched all five numbers and the Super Cash Ball in the April 17 drawing. The record $6,691,944 jackpot is the first time someone won the Super Kansas Cash since Jan. 10, 2018.
Lottery officials did not name the location where the winning ticket was purchased.
The winner from Johnson County claimed the prize anonymously Thursday morning. Under Kansas law, the identity of the winner does not have to be made public.
“I’ve been playing more Super Kansas Cash since the jackpot has been so high,” the winner said “When I play Keno, I would cash in my winning tickets and instead of taking the money I would buy Super Kansas Cash tickets. That has been my strategy for a while.”
All Super Kansas Cash jackpots are paid in one-lump sum.
