There was no jackpot winner last night, but two people in other states used Power Play to win $1 million. We also had a player in Missouri match five white-ball numbers to win $200,000. The winning ticket was sold at Hy-Vee on St. Clair Ave. in Kansas City.
There were two big winners in Club Keno last night as well. A player who buys tickets at Pockets in Kansas City won more than $5,000, and a ticket worth $6,500 was sold at Chip Shot Bar & Grill in Kansas City.
The Powerball jackpot for Saturday stands at $40 million.
