Georgia Lottery players statewide won big from Wednesday's Powerball drawing.

Winning tickets worth $1 million were sold at QuikTrip on S. Cobb Drive S.E. in Marietta and Publix Super Market on Loganville Highway S.W. in Loganville.

CBS Atlanta News talked with the $1 million winners in Loganville as they came to check their ticket.

Lee Pietrobon, 78, and his wife Pat, 71, told CBS Atlanta News they play the same numbers every week. This time it paid off in a big way.

"Dumb luck's gotta come somewhere down the line," said Lee Pietrobon. "Why not keep playing it?"

He said they plan on sharing much of the winnings with their immediate family.

"Our kids will benefit from this, all the kids will," said Pat. "Definitely."

Two of seven winning tickets worth $10,000 were sold in Savannah with the others sold in Brunswick, Carrollton, Columbus, Dalton and Lawrenceville.

Winning numbers from Wednesday's Powerball drawing were: 2-11-26-34-41 and the Powerball was 32.

Saturday's jackpot is at an estimated $550 million to a single annuity winner, up from $475 million earlier in the day after an uptick in sales.

The last big Powerball win was on March 23, when a New Jersey won a $338 million jackpot, which was the fourth-largest Powerball prize ever.
