(WXIA) - The Powerball jackpot has risen to $123 for Wednesday's drawing in Atlanta.

A spokeswoman for Georgia Lottery said that nobody matched all six winning numbers on Saturday, but that two smaller prizes were claimed in the Atlanta area.

An Alpharetta Kroger store and a Money Bank in Pine Mountain sold two tickets to winners who got $10,000 each.

Wednesday's Powerball prize has been increasing since February 9.

If a winner matches all the numbers on Wednesday, they can receive the lottery prize in 30 graduated payments over 29 years, or take the cash option of about $78 million.

Powerball costs $2 per play, and proceeds benefit education throughout Georgia.
