Powerball ticket sold in Georgia wins $1 million; jackpot rises to $1.23 billion

ATLANTA — No one took home the big jackpot in Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing, but one person in Georgia woke up richer.

The Georgia Lottery confirmed to Action News Jax sister station WSB-TV in Atlanta that a ticket matched all numbers -- except for the Powerball -- in Wednesday night’s drawing.


The winning numbers were 11-38-41-62-65 and 15 was the Powerball.

Someone purchased the $1 million ticket at a Kroger store at 4880 Lower Roswell Road in Marietta.
