NASHVILLE— Happy New Year to a lucky Powerball player in Dandridge, who won $100,000 last night by matching four of the white ball numbers drawn plus the Powerball. The base prize for that prize level is $50,000, but since the player added the Power Play option for an extra dollar, the prize was multiplied by last night’s multiplier, which was two.
The winning ticket was sold at Food City, 123 West Hwy. 25-70, in Dandridge.
