Pair of $1 million lottery tickets sold in Georgia

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Two $1 million lottery tickets were sold in Georgia, in addition to the big winner who purchased a ticket in Atlanta to split the near-record $636 million Mega Millions jackpot.

Two other tickets sold in Georgia - one in Columbus and one in the northeast Georgia town of Winder -- won $1 million each in Tuesday's drawing, the Georgia Lottery announced. Also, 26 $5,000 winning tickets were sold throughout Georgia.

One of the two largest winning tickets was sold at a small news stand inside an office tower in Atlanta's Buckhead area. The other was sold in California. Those winners now have the ability to split the $636 million jackpot once they come forward and claim their prizes.
