No, no one locally won the nearly $759 million jackpot — the second-largest in Powerball history. A woman in Massachusetts is going to enjoy all of that.

However, two tickets sold at gas stations in metro Atlanta are worth $1 million after matching five numbers in Wednesday night’s drawing, according to the Georgia Lottery. The winning numbers were 6, 7, 16, 23 and 26, and the Powerball number was 4.

The $1 million tickets were sold at a RaceTrac in the 2300 block of Marietta Boulevard in northwest Atlanta and a Shell in the 3700 block of Bouldercrest in Ellenwood, the Georgia Lottery stated.

One player won $200,000 from a ticket purchased in Macon and 14 others won $50,000 from tickets sold across the state, including in Atlanta, College Park, Doraville, Fayetteville and Marietta. 

The lucky winners of the $1 million tickets, the $200,000 ticket and the $50,000 tickets have not come forward.

The next game worth $40 million will be drawn Saturday. You can watch the drawing right before the Channel 2 Action News Nightbeat at 11 p.m.
