ATLANTA — There may be someone in Hall County who's just a little bit richer now, after Wednesday night's Powerball drawing.

One ticket from the May 29 drawing, and purchased in Gainesville, was worth $1 million.

The ticket was sold at the BP Food Mart at 3170 Frontage Road.

The winning numbers drawn in Wednesday night's drawing were 3-32-34-42-61 and the Powerball was 7. The ticket drawn in Gainesville matched the first five numbers but missed the Powerball.

A winner has not come forward to claim the prize yet. Powerball winners in Georgia have 180 days from the drawing date to claim their prizes.

No one matched all of the numbers, including the Powerball, which means the jackpot for Saturday night's drawing is an estimated $350 million for a single annuity winner.

Friday night's Mega Millions estimated jackpot is an estimated $444 million for a single annuity winner.

Tickets for both games are $2 each.
