$105M powers Powerball jackpot drawing Wednesday

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

ATLANTA – Powerball is gaining traction with the jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing at an estimated $105 million to a single annuity winner.

The Powerball jackpot has grown since June 1 and has rolled five times.

Powerball offers two jackpot payment options: the $105 million jackpot prize paid over 29 years in 30 graduated payments; or the cash option, which is approximately $63 million.

Powerball tickets are $2 per play. Players can add the Power Play feature for an additional $1 per play to multiply non-jackpot prize winnings.

As with all other Georgia Lottery games, proceeds from Powerball will benefit education in the state of Georgia.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $14.3 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs, including Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia’s Pre-K Program. More than 1.6 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.2 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
