One Powerball player probably spent a sleepless night after the Saturday’s draw and for a good reason – thanks to this amazing game, they just became $247.000.000 richer. After this big victory for a resident of Georgia, the jackpot has been reset to $40.000.000. You could win that prize on Wednesday night, so pick your lucky combination and play now!
The numbers drawn on September 17th were 9, 19, 51, 55 and 62 plus the Power Ball number 14. They were all matched by a sole winner from Georgia, but Saturday proved to be a fruitful night for around 865.000 players who managed to scoop prizes of smaller value. Even though no Match 5 winners were produced last night, the sum total of all non-jackpot prizes amounted to over $7.500.000.
This is currently the largest Powerball jackpot ever won in Georgia – the record was previously held by Gerald Render, who netted $116.000.000 back in September 2010. This is also the first time since September 14th 2011 that the jackpot went to this state – that was the night when Kathy Scruggs scooped $25.000.000 after buying her golden ticket by mistake. Fortunate woman said she’ll use the money to build a home for her mother and her grandmother, start foundations for the homeless and provide dental assistance for those in need.
Georgia is also a home to the winner of the largest unclaimed jackpot in Powerball history – back in June 2011 one person from this state matched all the numbers to snatch $77.000.000, but never came forward to claim the money.
