ATLANTA — Someone who grabbed a lottery ticket at a Southwest Atlanta convenience store is about to be much more wealthy.

The Georgia Lottery confirmed the Cascade Food Mart at 1072 Cascade Road sold a ticket worth $1 million. 

The winning numbers for the May 10 Mega Millions drawing were 3-16-21-61-62 and the Mega Ball was 19. Meanwhile, the winning numbers for the May 14 drawing were 11-59-66-67-68 and the Mega Ball was 18.

Two more tickets worth $10,000 each were also sold in Norcross and Tallapoosa - one at the Publix Super Market at 7736 Spalding Dr. in Norcross and the other at Robinson & Sons at 14 Commerce Pl. in Tallapoosa.

There was also a $40,000 ticket sold at a Quik Stop at 2206 2nd Ave. in Columbus.

The Georgia Lottery added that there were actually three more $10,000 tickets sold as well, one at 7 to 7 Newsstand at 600 W. Peachtree Street in Atlanta, Circle K at 215 4th Street in Columbus and online at www.galottery.com.

What they didn't sell in the time period was a jackpot which has since climbed to $339 million.

Proceeds from Mega Millions and all other Georgia Lottery games benefit education in Georgia.
