New Georgia Lottery game begins

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Georgia Lottery has officially launched a new game.

It's called Jumbo Bucks. The game combines a classic lotto with an instant win component for an extra charge.

Unlike the multi-state Powerball and mega millions games, this game is only for Georgia Lottery players.

Players pick numbers between 1 and 47.

The odds of winning are about 1 in 10 million.

Drawings are for a 6-digit number, and run on Mondays and Thursdays. Tickets cost $1.

The jackpot starts at $1 million and the first drawing is at 11 p.m. on Monday, February 23.
