Powerball generated $9.9 million in profit for lottery-funded HOPE Scholarship and Pre-K programs since the jackpot began rolling June 26.
The jackpot for Saturday’s drawing is an estimated $40 million to a single annuity winner.
Winners in Georgia have 180 days from the draw date to claim prizes.

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 $14.6 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.
