Powerball jackpot surges to $1.4B; 4 $50,000 prizes won in Georgia
ATLANTA – The Powerball jackpot continues to soar after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Wednesday night – white balls 9, 35, 54, 63, 64 and red Powerball 1. The Power Play multiplier was 2X.
The Powerball jackpot now stands at an estimated $1.4 billion for the next drawing on Saturday night. The jackpot has a cash value of $643.7 million.
Saturday’s estimated jackpot ranks as the third largest in the Powerball game and fifth largest among U.S. lottery jackpots. The Powerball jackpot was previously won on July 19. Since then, there have been 33 consecutive drawings without a grand prize winner.
Wednesday’s drawing produced four $50,000 winners in Georgia. The lucky tickets were purchased at: Kroger #0374, 2100 Riverside Parkway, Lawrenceville; Coweta Veterans Club Inc., 130 Veterans Club Road, Newnan; Hemphill Food Mart, 1328 Highway 138 E, Stockbridge; and Quick Mart 2, 502 S. Court St., Quitman.
Powerball tickets can be purchased at Georgia Lottery retailers statewide. Georgia residents with a Georgia mailing address, who are located in Georgia at the time of purchase, can purchase Powerball tickets via the Georgia Lottery app or online at www.galottery.com.
Powerball tickets are $2 per play. Powerball players can multiply prizes with the Power Play option for an additional $1 per play.
Players are reminded to check their tickets for one of the nine ways to win. Powerball 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 $26.8 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 2.1 million students have received HOPE, and more than 2 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
