ATLANTA – The Powerball jackpot keeps rolling in stunning fashion, briskly surpassing $150 million, with tonight’s drawing at an estimated $156 million to a single annuity winner.

The jackpot began rolling Sept. 21 and has rolled seven times.

One winning Powerball ticket worth $10,000 was sold in College Park from the Oct. 12 drawing.

Powerball offers two jackpot payment options: the $156 million annuity prize paid over 29 years in 30 graduated payments; or the cash option, which is approximately $89 million.

Powerball tickets are $2 per play. Players can add the Power Play feature for an additional $1 per play to increase non-jackpot prize winnings.

As with all other Georgia Lottery games, proceeds from Powerball will benefit education in the state of Georgia.
