Powerball player narrowly misses $57 million jackpot, but still wins big in Georgia

A Georgia Powerball player just missed the estimated $57 million jackpot but still walked away with a sizable prize.

Someone in Martinez won $150,000 after matching four numbers and the red Powerball in the drawing Wednesday, June 19, according to the Georgia Lottery.

The lucky player would’ve won $50,000 but spent an extra $1 on the power play option, tripling their prize. The winning ticket was purchased on the Georgia Lottery app, officials said.

The winning numbers were 4, 27, 44, 50, 64 and red Powerball 7, according to the lottery game’s website. The Powerplay option was 3X.

Someone in New York won $2 million, results show. No one hit the $57 million jackpot, pushing the grand prize to an estimated $72 million.

The next Powerball drawing is Saturday, June 22.

Martinez is about a 5-mile drive northwest from Augusta.
