ATLANTA – Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot has climbed to an estimated $173 million after no one matched all the winning numbers in Saturday’s drawing.
Two Georgia Lottery players matched four numbers plus the Powerball number Saturday, winning $10,000 each. The lucky tickets were purchased in McDonough and LaFayette.
The Powerball jackpot has been growing since Lithonia resident Kathy Scruggs won $25 million in the Sept. 14 drawing.
Powerball offers two payment options: the $173 million jackpot prize paid over 29 years in 30 graduated payments, or the cash option, which is approximately $105 million.
Powerball tickets are $1 per play.
As with all other Georgia Lottery games, proceeds from Powerball will benefit education in the state of Georgia.
