A group of 20 longtime co-workers now share more than their place of work—together they won, and will split, a $420.9 Powerball jackpot from the drawing held Nov. 26, 2016. The “Tennessee 20,” as they quickly dubbed themselves after the big win, joined Tennessee Education Lottery officials today to claim their winnings.
NASHVILLE—As fever grows for tonight's Powerball jackpot of $359 Million, the 199th Tennessee Lottery ticket worth $1 million or more was won in LaVergne last night. That player matched 5 of 6 numbers drawn in the Mega Millions game, and begs the question: Who will be Lucky #200?
No additional information about the LaVergne winner is available until the prize is claimed.
The very popular Jumbo Bucks instant game has created another $50,000 winner! Congratulations to Zachary Chesteen who purchased his lucky Jumbo Bucks ticket at Randy’s One Stop in St. Joseph in Lawrence County.
