Weekend jackpots shine: $99M Mega; $180M Powerball

ATLANTA – Georgia Lottery players this weekend have a chance to hook large prizes from two healthy jackpots.

The Mega Millions jackpot for Friday is at a strong $99 million with a whopping $180 million Powerball jackpot up for grabs Saturday.

Tickets per play for both games are $1 with an additional $1 for the Mega Millions Megaplier and Power Play multiplier options.

Any lucky Mega Millions player who matches all five white ball numbers, along with the Mega Ball number, could win approximately $3.8 million a year for 26 years with the annuity option. Or a player could select the cash option and win a single payment worth approximately $66 million.

Since joining Powerball in 2010, two lucky winners from Georgia have won jackpot prizes.

Powerball offers two payment options: the jackpot prize paid over 29 years in 30 graduated payments or the cash option, which is approximately $100 million.
