Winning ticket worth $2.1M was sold in Tennille

By Todd Northrop

A Georgia Lottery retailer in Tennille has sold the first Jumbo Bucks Lotto with Cash Match jackpot-winning ticket, worth $2.1 million.

The lucky jackpot ticket for Thursday's drawing was purchased at Hungry Hunter, 91 N. Fourth St., Tennille.

Winning numbers from the drawing were 7, 18, 27, 28, 36, and 46. The winner has 180 days from the draw date to claim.

Seventeen players around the state each won the game's $500 second prize Thursday. In addition, 463 players won $50 each, and 7,805 players each won $5.

Jumbo Bucks Lotto with Cash Match is a new game available only in Georgia. The game combines a classic lotto draw game with an instant-win component. There have been 12 Georgia Jumbo Bucks Lotto drawings since the game's first drawing on February 23, 2015.

(See Georgia Lottery launches new Georgia-only lotto game, Lottery Post, Feb. 23, 2015.)

The game features a rolling jackpot that continues growing every drawing there is no top-prize winner. Drawings for the game are held at 11 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays.

The jackpot for Monday's Jumbo Bucks Lotto drawing is reset to the starting amount of $1 million.
