Take off: $50K Powerball ticket sold at Atlanta airport
ATLANTA вЂ“ One lucky Georgia Lottery player is jetting away with a lucky lottery win. A winning ticket worth $50,000 was sold at a Georgia Lottery kiosk at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport for the March 7 Powerball drawing.
Winning numbers from the March 7 drawing were: 6-13-19-36-51 and the Powerball was 18. The winning ticket matched the first five numbers without the Powerball.
A second ticket worth $100,000 was sold in McDonough. That prize was doubled by the Power Play option.
Both winners claimed their prizes Thursday.
SaturdayвЂ™s Powerball jackpot is an estimated $385 million to a single annuity winner.
Powerball tickets can be purchased at Georgia Lottery retailers statewide. Georgia residents also can purchase Powerball tickets via the Georgia Lottery app or online at www.galottery.com.
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 $19.2 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs, including GeorgiaвЂ™s HOPE Scholarship Program and GeorgiaвЂ™s Pre-K Program. More than 1.8 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.6 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
