TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas Lottery officials are announcing a restructuring plan, closing the Great Bend office and shuffling responsibilities in the coming weeks.

The lottery said Tuesday the Great Bend office will close to the public on Dec. 13. Four people currently work in the office. Three will be reassigned to other duties and one position will be eliminated.

Interim Lottery Director Sherriene Jones-Sontag says that most of the prizes claimed from winners were already collected at the Topeka headquarters. Prizes worth $599 or less can still be collected at retailers statewide. Larger prizes can be claimed in Topeka by mail or in person.

The lottery is also redefining positions within its sales division in an effort to recruit new retailers, educate players about various games and increase sales.
