ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

The Powerball jackpot is now up to an estimated $260 million to a single annuity winner for Wednesday's drawing.

The jackpot has grown since Feb. 9 and has rolled 11 times.

Three lucky Georgia Lottery players won big from Saturday's drawing.

One lucky ticket worth $1 million was sold at Jet Food Store in Macon, another Powerball ticket worth $40,000 was sold at 301 N. Package Store in Jesup, and a ticket worth $10,000 was sold at Chevron Food Mart in Atlanta.

Powerball offers two payment options: the $260 million jackpot prize paid over 29 years in 30 graduated payments, or the cash option, which is approximately $161 million.
