Powerball jackpot reaches $151 million

The Georgia Lottery’s Powerball jackpot keeps rolling along.

Nobody matched all six winning numbers in Saturday night’s drawing, so the prize for Wednesday night stands at an estimated $151 million to a single winner.

Two lucky lottery players picked up $10,000 in Saturday’s drawing, thanks to tickets bought in Douglasville and LaGrange, but the big prize has been elusive.

The jackpot has rolled eight times since Dec. 29.

The winner would have two payment choices — the $151 million jackpot prize paid over 29 years or the cash option of about $95 million.

Powerball tickets are $2 per play, plus an additional $1 per play to add the Power Play multiplier, with proceeds benefitting education in Georgia.

Saturday’s drawing will be shown live at 11 p.m. on WSB-TV Channel 2.
