NASHVILLE - What a holiday weekend at the Tennessee Lottery! Two lucky winners, one who purchased a ticket in Chattanooga and the other in Nashville, won $250,000 each after Friday's Mega Millions drawing, which now has a whopping jackpot of $206 million. Saturday's Powerball drawing brought even more fortune for a player in Memphis who won $1 million by matching five white numbers and using the Powerball Power Play. Yet another lucky Powerball player in Kingsport matched five white numbers (without Power Play) to win $200,000! Meanwhile, the Powerball jackpot of $128.8 million was won by a player in Maryland. Please note that all Lottery offices are closed on Monday, Dec. 26, and will reopen on Tuesday, Dec. 27. No additional information about the winners is available until the prizes are claimed.
