NASHVILLE— As the mega jackpot for Powerball continues to soar, thousands win prizes from the eight other prize levels along the way. Last night, two lucky players from Knoxville and Dyersburg won $50,000 each by matching four of the five white numbers drawn plus the red Powerball.
The $750 million jackpot for Saturday has an estimated cash value of $428.6 million and is the third largest in Powerball game history and the fourth largest ever. The jackpot has been growing since it was last won on Aug. 11 in New York.
