Powerball springs into action with $128M for drawing Saturday

Friday, April 18, 2014

ATLANTA – Saturday’s drawing for the Powerball jackpot amounts to an estimated $128 million to a single annuity winner, creating excitement across Georgia.

The Powerball jackpot began rolling March 26 and has rolled seven times.

A winning ticket worth $1 million was purchased in Acworth from Wednesday’s drawing.

Powerball offers two jackpot payment options: the $128 million annuity prize paid over 29 years in 30 graduated payments; or the cash option, which is approximately $74 million.

Powerball tickets are $2 per play. Players can add the Power Play feature for an additional $1 per play to increase 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 $15 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 1.3 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
