$150,000 Powerball Winners in Memphis and Alcoa; $50,000 in Kingsport, Mosheim and Hixson
5 Tennessee Players Win Big; Jackpot Won in New York and Iowa
NASHVILLE— Five Tennessee Powerball players matched the same number combination last night to win the following prizes: $150,000 in Memphis and Alcoa, and $50,000 in Kingsport, Mosheim and Hixson.
The players matched four numbers plus the Powerball, which has a base prize of $50,000. But since the Memphis and Alcoa players added the Power Play for an extra dollar, the prize was multiplied by the multiplier number drawn last night, which was three.
The Powerball jackpot of $687.8 million was won by a player in New York and one in Iowa, who will split the prize.
No additional information about the Tennessee winners is available until the prizes are claimed.
