$49 million lottery ticket sold in Georgia

ATLANTA — Authorities say a $49 million winning lottery ticket has been sold in south Georgia.

With many lottery players focused on a record $500 Powerball jackpot that has yet to be won, the winning Georgia ticket matched all six numbers from a Tuesday night drawing in another game, Mega Millions.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the ticket was sold in Thomasville. Georgia Lottery officials have not yet said which retailer in the town, about 60 miles south of Albany, sold the $49 million ticket.

Meanwhile, the next Powerball drawing is scheduled for Wednesday night.
