#powerball First-time lottery player wins $1M Powerball prize

January 15th, 2016

A first-time lottery player is a new millionaire. Shaadi Edwards, 27, won $1 million by matching the first five winning numbers in Wednesday's Powerball drawing.

Edwards realized she won after seeing the draw results on Twitter.

"It felt surreal," she said.

A resident of Atlanta, Edwards hopes to purchase a home, pay off her grandparents' house, and do advocacy work.

Winning numbers from the drawing were: 4-8-19-27-34 and the Powerball was 10.

Edwards used ages and birthdays to select her winning combination.

Quik Mart, located at 48 Broad St. S.W. in Atlanta, sold the lucky ticket. A second $1 million ticket was purchased in Douglas.

As with all other Georgia Lottery games, proceeds from Powerball will benefit education in the state of Georgia.
