ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

There may have been only been one Powerball winner from Florida, but some Georgians were lucky as well.

A Georgia Lottery official tells CBS Atlanta News two people from Canton and Columbus won $1 million.

There are 17 winners from Atlanta, Buchanan, Buford, Calhoun, Carrollton, Columbus, Covington, Cumming, Decatur (two) Duluth, Hiram, Lindale, Mableton, Marietta, Savannah, and a internet wager winner who will receive $10,000.

One person from Augusta also scored $40,000.

The winning $600 million jackpot ticket was sold in Zephyrhills, FL.

Florida Lottery executive Cindy O'Connell told The Associated Press by telephone that the winner was not immediately identified publicly and she did not give any indication hours after Saturday's drawing whether anyone had already stepped forward with the ticket.
