ATLANTA -- Georgia Lottery officials said Thursday afternoon that Saturday's Powerball jackpot has jumped to $550 million, less than a day after it rolled over to $475 million.

That marks the third largest jackpot in US history, only topped by a $587.5 million Powerball jackpot and a $656 million Mega Millions jackpot, both drawn last year.
