ATLANTA -

Powerball is heating up as the jackpot for Saturday's drawing is at an estimated $141 million to a single annuity winner.

The Powerball jackpot has grown since June 26 and has rolled seven times.

Tickets are $2 per play. Players can add the Power Play feature for an additional $1 per play to multiply non-jackpot prize winnings.

The latest time to purchase a ticket is until 10 p.m. on the day of drawing.

As with all other Georgia Lottery games, proceeds from Powerball will benefit education in the state of Georgia.

These education programs include Georgia's HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia's Pre-K Program. More than 1.6 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.2 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $14.6 billion to the state of Georgia for education.

Powerball offers two jackpot payment options: the $141 million annuity prize paid over 29 years in 30 graduated payments; or the cash option, which is approximately $82 million.
