Powerball hits $360M

Powerball and Mega Millions hit a combined $550 million

The Mega Millions jackpot for Friday rolled over to $190 million after no players matched all six numbers drawn Tuesday night, while the top prize in Wednesday night’s Powerball multi-state lottery stands at $360 million.

Two lottery players in Georgia, as well as players in Delaware, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan and New York, matched the first five numbers in Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing – 6, 10, 12, 28 and 32 – but missed on the Mega Ball, which was 38.

Those seven players won $250,000 each. The two Georgia tickets were sold at a RaceTrac station on Spring Road in Smyrna and at G&G Food Mart on Irwin Avenue in Ocilla, Georgia Lottery officials said late Wednesday morning.

If a single player matches all six numbers in Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing and chooses the cash option, he or she would receive a single payout of approximately $229 million before taxes.

The Powerball and Mega Millions drawings can be seen live on Channel 2, just before Action News Nightbeat at 11 p.m.
