Powerball expanding drawings to 3 days a week starting August 23


TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNW) – Starting August 23, Powerball drawings will expand to three nights a week, with a Monday drawing being added to the draw schedule, according to the Kansas Lottery.

The game change will affect players who like to purchase multi-draw tickets. To prepare, the Kansas Lottery is “stepping down” the number of consecutive Powerball drawings players can purchase after the June 30 drawing until August 23 when sales begin for the new schedule of the Powerball game.

The Powerball game is currently drawn on Wednesday and Saturday. Players will continue to have until 8:59 p.m. Central Time on draw days to purchase tickets. Tickets are $2 a play, and jackpots start at $20 million.
