Last night’s POWERBALL drawing created the Tennessee Lottery’s 75th winner of $1 million or more! A player who purchased a ticket in Knoxville matched all five white balls selected in last night's drawing and used the Power Play option, which is why the $200,000 prize became a $1 million prize. In addition, a winning ticket for the $221.7 million Powerball jackpot was sold in Indiana.

No additional information about the Knoxville winner is available until the player claims the prize.
