Three $1 million Powerball tickets sold in Georgia

(WTVM) -

The Georgia Lottery Corp. confirms that three $1 million Powerball tickets were sold in Georgia in Wednesday's drawing. Those tickets were sold in Peachtree City, Stockbridge, and Pooler.

That means players had all five of the first numbers right, but missed the Powerball number.

Thirty-five other ticket holders across the country also won $1 million. 

The three winners of the $448 million jackpot were located in New Jersey (two winners) and Minnesota. Each will share the huge jackpot, getting about $149 million each before taxes.

That's an estimated $85 million each with the lump sum cash option.
