#powerball Group of Kansas Players to Share $1 Million Prize

August 25th, 2017

A group of Kansas residents claimed a $1 million cash prize from the Feb. 22, 2017 Powerball drawing.

The four winners from Atchison wish to remain anonymous, according to the Kansas Lottery.

The group matched the first five numbers in the drawing, but not the Powerball.

"Once I knew we had won $1 million, I signed the back of the ticket and put it in our home safe," said one of the winners. "After that, I called everyone in our group and told them what we had won. Everyone is so excited about winning. We're just kindhearted, hardworking, everyday people. I never thought we'd win something like this."

The lucky winners said they already have plans for the prize money, including paying off student loans, fulfilling a wish list, buying a Utility Task Vehicle and investing for the future.

The winning ticket was purchased at Casey's General Store at 1629 Main St. in Atchison, Kansas.
