The cash option will leave you with $375.7 million, which is still a pretty good payday.

You can watch the LIVE drawing on Channel 2 before WSB Tonight at 11 p.m.


Earlier this week, two Georgians walked away with thousands of dollars from the Powerball drawing.

Georgia Lottery officials said a $100,000 ticket was sold in Sardis, Georgia at the Jet Food Store on Charles Perry Avenue. They say the winner doubled their $50,000 prize with the 2X Power Play option.

Another ticket worth $50,000 was sold at a Publix on Bowman Road in Macon.
