History of the Kansas Lottery
The Kansas Lottery is one of the original members of the Multi-State Lottery Association and has quite a rich history behind it. From big payouts to players to big transfers to the state of Kansas, this lottery knows how to do things right.
Thanks to the overwhelming support of Kansas voters, the Kansas Lottery was established on November 11th, 1986. In September 1987, Kansas joined five other states and one U.S. jurisdiction to create the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL). Kansas Lottery ticket sales began a year later on November 12th, 1987, and the instant game Up and Away generated sales of $7 million in its first week. Sales of Lotto*America tickets began in 1988 and Powerball tickets went on sale in April 1992.
Super Kansas Cash was launched in 2002 as a revised version of the original Kansas Cash game. The Kansas Lottery began selling Mega Millions tickets in January 2010. Today, almost $1.5 billion in revenue has been allocated to the State Gaming Revenues Fund, which distributes lottery proceeds to a number of different economic initiatives.

Playing Kansas Lottery Games
Super Kansas Cash is a draw game that offers a starting jackpot of $100,000! Drawings are held every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 9:10 PM. At a minimum, players pay $1 for two boards on a ticket and can play six boards for $3. They then choose five numbers from 1 to 32 and one number from 1 to 25 in a separate box. A Quick Pick option is available for those who want to randomly generate their numbers. To win the jackpot, players must match all five main numbers drawn as well as the bonus number. Here's a breakdown:

The Kansas Lottery also offers two kinds of exciting instant win games - pull tab games and instant scratch games. With pull-tab games, all you have to do is pull open the tab on the ticket to see if you've matched three symbols in a window to win a prize. These games offer prizes of up to $2,500 that can be won right on the spot! Instant scratch games cost between $1 and $20 and can offer prizes of up to $100,000. All you have to do is scratch off the coating to see if you're a winner. Both pull tab and instant scratch games are available for purchase from authorized Kansas Lottery retailers.
Claiming Kansas Lottery Prizes
If you've won $599 or less, you can redeem your Kansas Lottery prize at an authorized retailer or from the Lottery offices in Topeka. Prizes worth $600 or more must be claimed at the Topeka office by mail or in person. You'll need to complete a claim form and bring proof of identity.
Remember that you have up to 365 days from the date of a drawing to claim a prize for games like Powerball, Mega Millions or Super Kansas Cash. You have 180 days from the date of closure for an instant game to claim any prize you may have won. Any prize money left unclaimed after this time will stay in the prize fund and be used to increase the value of prizes in future games. It cannot be used for any other purpose.
Federal withholding taxes of 25 percent and Kansas state taxes of five percent are withheld on all prizes worth more than $5,000.
Want to play Kansas Lottery games? That's great - but you need to be at least 18 years old.
Don't be fooled - you cannot win a prize for a lottery game that you never entered in the first place. If you ever receive an email, phone call, letter or other message telling you that you've won a prize in a game you never played, be on your guard, as you could be the target of a lottery scam.
