NASHVILLE— A player in Memphis won $2 million from last night’s Powerball drawing by matching five of six numbers drawn. That prize begins at $1 million, but since the lucky player added the Power Play option for an extra dollar, it is $2 million.
This is the 252nd winning ticket of $1 million or more sold since the Tennessee Education Lottery began selling tickets on Jan. 20, 2004.
No information about the winner is available until the prize is claimed.
