Unclaimed Powerball jackpot prize funds are returned proportionately to each participating state based on that state’s sales for the particular drawing. Forty-two states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands participate in Powerball.
In Georgia, unclaimed prize funds go back into the prize pool to be used for future game prizes, special prize promotions, and ultimately are paid out to players. Also of this money, $200,000 is transferred annually to the Georgia Department of Human Resources for education and treatment programs for problem gambling.
As with all other Georgia Lottery games, proceeds from Powerball will benefit education in the state of Georgia.
Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $12.9 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs, including Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia’s Pre-K Program. More than 1.3 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.1 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
