Powerball jackpot rises to $250 million | Community Spirit
ATLANTA – Powerball has soared to staggering heights. Wednesday’s jackpot has jumped to $250 million after no one matched all the winning numbers in Saturday’s drawing.
One Georgia Lottery player won $10,000 in Saturday’s drawing. The lucky ticket was purchased in Pooler.
The Powerball jackpot has been growing since Dec. 28 and has rolled 12 times.
Powerball offers two payment options: the $250 million jackpot prize paid over 29 years in 30 graduated payments, or the cash option, which is approximately $156 million.
Powerball tickets are $2 per play.
As with all other Georgia Lottery games, proceeds from Powerball will benefit education in the state of Georgia.
