NASHVILLE—Last night’s exciting Powerball drawing produced more than 66,000 winning tickets in Tennessee, including a $150,000 winner in Knoxville. Meanwhile, the jackpot continues to climb, now at a gargantuan $750 million for Wednesday night. This is the third largest Powerball jackpot and the fourth largest in U.S. lottery history.
The Knoxville player won by matching four white ball numbers plus the red Powerball, which has a base prize of $50,000. But since the lucky player added the Power Play for an extra dollar, the prize was multiplied by last night’s Power Play number, which was three.
The $150,000 ticket was purchased at Weigel’s, 4750 Middlebrook Pike, in Knoxville.
No additional information is available until the prize is claimed.
