Country music fans in Kansas have the option of seeing superstars Morgan Wallen, Jason Aldean or Keith Urban this year at the INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita. But why pick only one?
On March 3, the Kansas Lottery will announce five winners from its PlayOn app where they can get six tickets for -any- three concerts this year at the INTRUST Arena. All you have to do is is redeem 288 points on your PlayOn Kansas Lottery app on your computer or mobile device by Sunday, Feb. 27. That enters you in the drawing.
Winners will be notified by email and must be 18 or older. Points are accumulated by scanning any winning or non-winning ticket the Kansas Lottery. The Kansas Lottery continues to make it possible to win with every ticket.
More Ways to PlayOn and Win
The PlayOn app is also holding a drawing for a $50 dollar Kansas Lottery coupon. Players just have to redeem 105 PlayOn points to enter. Winners will be notified via email with entries due Feb. 28 and the winners announced March 4.
But if you’d prefer cold, hard cash, there is one more PlayOn game happening right now. This one will cost you 350 PlayOn points with the winners receiving $2,500 in cash. There will be four winners of this prize announced April 7.

She Won a Car (Finally
Just because that scratch–off ticket didn’t pay off right away doesn’t mean it’s a loser.
Just ask Tatum Von Winklepeck. He recently drove off in a new 2021 Ford Escape as part of the Kansas Lottery’s Sweet Escape second-chance promotion.
Players entered the drawing by submitting non-winning $5 Sweet Escape tickets into the PlayOn app in mid-2021. Out of 102,182 entries Von Winklepeck was the winner. Even with the delay of her new car due to supply chain issues, that’s one heck of a second chance win.
Where the Kansas Lottery Profits Go
Since its inception in 1987 to June 2021, the Kansas Lottery has produced over $2–billion in revenue. Of that amount, $3.8–billion has gone back to players.
Profits are divided into multiple resources to help Kansans everywhere. The State Gaming Revenue Fund (SGRF) allocates a portion for recovering gambling addict programs. 85 percent goes to the Economic Development Initiatives Fund, and 10 percent to the Correctional Institutions Building Fund. Additionally, five percent to Juvenile Detention Facilities Fund.
Since 2003, proceeds are also directed to multiple Kansas Veterans programs from the Veterans Benefit Games sold all year. 40 percent are given to the National Guard Educational scholarships. Furthermore, 30 percent goes to housing Kansas veterans, and 30 percent is for enhanced veterans service delivery programs.
From the Veterans Games, Kansas has transferred over $21 Million dollars to be used since 2004.
Profits from Kansas Lottery vending machines have transferred over seven million dollars for Aging and Disability Services throughout the state.
