Powerball generates $18.6M for education in Georgia, $11.3M in prizes
ATLANTA – The fireworks continued well into the New Year as Powerball soared to exciting heights. While two tickets in California and Wisconsin split Wednesday’s $632.6 million jackpot prize, Georgia’s students and Georgia Lottery players kicked off the year as huge winners.
Since the jackpot run began Oct. 6, 2021, Powerball generated approximately $18.6 million for the Georgia Lottery-funded HOPE Scholarship and Pre-K programs.
In addition, Georgia Lottery players won approximately $11.3 million in prizes.
Since the Christmas Day Powerball drawing, Georgia celebrated one $2 million winner who purchased the lucky ticket online at galottery.com, one $1 million winner in Savannah, and 13 $50,000 winners.
The $50,000 tickets were purchased in Canton, Commerce, Conyers, Cornelia, Dalton, Decatur, Duluth, Fayetteville, Johns Creek, Sandy Springs, and Winder, with two $50,000 tickets purchased online at galottery.com.
Powerball winners in Georgia have 180 days from the draw date to claim prizes.
Saturday’s Powerball jackpot is an estimated $20 million to a single annuity winner.
Powerball tickets can be purchased at Georgia Lottery retailers statewide. Georgia residents also can purchase tickets via the Georgia Lottery app or online at www.galottery.com.
Powerball players can multiply prizes with the Power Play option for an additional $1 per play.
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 $24.2 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 2 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.6 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
