Mega Millions player wins big in Kansas. Where was the winning ticket sold?

A Mega Millions ticket sold in Kansas won $1 million, narrowly missing out on the $97 million jackpot, lottery officials say.

The ticket matched five winning numbers in the drawing Tuesday, April 9, but not the Mega Ball, the Kansas Lottery said.

Nobody won the grand prize, which will rise to an estimated $120 million, with a cash option of approximately $56 million, for the next drawing Friday, April 12, the national Mega Millions site said.

The winning numbers were 34, 43, 51, 52 and 69, with a Mega Ball of 25.

The $1 million winning ticket was sold in northeast Kansas, the state lottery said.

More than 3,700 other tickets sold in Kansas also won prizes ranging from $2 to $2,000 in the drawing, the lottery said.

A Mega Millions ticket sold in New York also matched five white numbers to win $1 million.
