# Powerball ticket worth \$50,000 sold in Georgia. Are you the lucky winner?

A Powerball lottery ticket worth \$50,000 was sold in Georgia, according to the Dec. 2 drawing results. There were also some smaller prizes among Peach State players after Saturday's drawing.

However, no one scored the jackpot, which is now up to \$412 million. This comes just a month after a ticket was drawn in California for the lottery's second largest ever jackpot of about \$1.765 billion. That life-changing prize was the result of 35 consecutive drawings without a jackpot winner.

The full list of winners is available on galottery.com. Here's a closer look at the most recent winning numbers, how the Powerball lottery works, and what players should do if they win:

Prizes up to \$25,000 can also be claimed at the GLC Kiosks located at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and are generally paid the same day.

## How to play Powerball?

Powerball players select five numbers from 1 to 69 for the standard white balls, then select one number from 1 to 26 for the red Powerball. They can choose their own lucky numbers on a play slip or let the lottery terminal randomly pick their numbers.

To win, match one of the nine ways:

• 5 white balls + 1 red Powerball = Grand prize.

• 5 white balls = \$1 million.

• 4 white balls + 1 red Powerball = \$50,000.

• 4 white balls = \$100.

• 3 white balls + 1 red Powerball = \$100.

• 3 white balls = \$7.

• 2 white balls + 1 red Powerball = \$7.

• 1 white ball + 1 red Powerball = \$4.

• 1 red Powerball = \$4.

There's a chance to have your winnings increased two, three, four, five and 10 times through the Power Play for an additional \$1 per play. Players can multiply non-jackpot wins up to 10 times when the jackpot is \$150 million or less. All prizes are set cash amounts, except for the grand prize.

The Powerball costs \$2 per play.
