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.

What gives??

When they came out with the lotto it was my understanding it was to help with education and the hope scholarship.. Well the lotto sales are at an all time high and it has been for a while. Where's the money?? Not in our schools from what I hear and see. Teachers paying for stuff out of their own pocket, College students having to take out loans because of cuts to the Hope funding. This is the biggest scam in the state. The only people getting rich off the Lotto are the jokers in charge.. I think a 3rd party needs to step in and do an audit. Lord knows they spend a good chuck of change on ad's.. Sorry Dreamers...
