Updated:ATLANTA — Georgians have a new way of trying their luck at becoming an instant millionaire.
Powerball tickets went on sale throughout the state Sunday.
"Adding Powerball is an exciting opportunity to provide our players with more chances to win large jackpots," said Georgia Lottery Corp. President and CEO Margaret DeFrancisco.
DeFrancisco also said that the new partnership provides new revenue for lottery-funded HOPE Scholarships and the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
Like Mega Millions, the cost of each Powerball ticket will be $1. Powerball drawings can be seen live on WSB-TV on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Mega Millions drawings will continue to be held on Tuesdays and Fridays, providing Georgians with four big jackpots each week.
