A 43-year-old Osawatomie man, who owns a stucco contracting business, had the winning numbers in Powerball and won $1 million, lottery officials said Monday.

Nelson Worley’s profitable ticket matched the first five numbers but not the Powerball in Saturday’s drawing. The winning numbers were 14, 25, 27, 38 and 58. The Powerball was 6.

Worley said about a year and a half ago he went into cardiac arrest, but a passer-by came to his rescue by giving him CPR.

“First and foremost, I’m lucky to be alive,” Worley said.

A ticket sold in southeast Kansas matched four of the first five numbers in the Powerball drawing and won $10,000. In south-central Kansas, including Wichita, a ticket for the Hot Lotto drawing matched four of the first five numbers and the Hot Ball to win $3,000. Saturday’s winning Hot Lotto numbers were 16, 24, 28, 32 and 45, and the Hot Ball was 2.

No ticket matched all numbers in Saturday’s Powerball or Hot Lotto drawings. That means the Powerball jackpot for Wednesday will be $166 million and the Hot Lotto jackpot will be $7.16 million.

The Mega Millions jackpot climbed to $13 million for Tuesday’s drawing.
