NASHVILLE - It’s an early Holiday gift for a lucky player in Memphis who won $1 million playing Powerball! The ticket matched all five white balls selected in the Dec. 1 drawing and used the Power Play option, which is why the $200,000 was transformed into a $1 million prize. This marks the 68th win of $1 million or more since the Lottery's inception. In addition, a winning ticket for the $95.3 million Powerball jackpot was purchased in Arizona.

No additional information about the Memphis win is available until the player claims the prize.
