Nobody won Wednesday's huge Powerball jackpot, but nine Georgia Lottery players will still get a big payoff. The Georgia Lottery says winning tickets worth $1 million each were sold in Marietta and Loganville, and seven $10,000 winners were sold elsewhere around the state.
Officials say one of the $1 million winners was sold at the QuikTrip located at 1350 S. Cobb Drive S.E. in Marietta. FOX 5's Chris Shaw got a look at a copy of the winning ticket that was sold there. The man who won the prize told the clerk at the store he plans to buy a truck and give some of the money to his church. The clerk told FOX 5 the man picked his own numbers.
The other winning ticket was sold to Lee Pietrobon at the Publix Super Market located at 2715 Loganville Highway S.W. in Loganville. Pietrobon said he had no plans for his newfound wealth yet.
Two of seven winning tickets worth $10,000 were sold in Savannah with the others sold in Brunswick, Carrollton, Columbus, Dalton and Lawrenceville.
Winning numbers from Wednesday's Powerball drawing were: 2-11-26-34-41 and the Powerball was 32.
Saturday's jackpot now up to an estimated $550 million to a single annuity winner.
