Two Powerball players win big in Georgia. Where were the lucky tickets sold?

An estimated $1.03 billion Powerball jackpot went unclaimed, but two Georgia lottery players still landed big prizes.

The winning tickets, one worth $100,000 and the other worth $50,000, were sold at the JJ Country Store in Powder Springs and at a BP gas station in Fayetteville during the drawing of April 1, Georgia Lottery officials told McClatchy News.

THE Powerball winning numbers drawn on Monday were 19, 24, 40, 42, 56 and red Powerball 23. The Power Play was 2x.

The $100,000 winner matched four white numbers and the Powerball to win a $50,000 prize and spent an additional $1 on the Power Play option, doubling their winnings, according to the results.

Tickets sold in Florida, Maryland, Minnesota, North Carolina And Virginia matched five numbers but not the Powerball, narrowly missing the $1.03 billion jackpot.

No tickets matched all six numbers, bringing the grand prize to $1.09 billion ahead of the April 3 drawing.

“The price is fourth largest Powerball jackpot and the ninth-largest U.S. lottery jackpot, putting it one spot below the $1.128 billion Mega Millions® jackpot that was won in New Jersey last Tuesday,” according to the Powerball website.

The top prize has an estimated cash value of $527.3 million.
