NASHVILLE - A Powerball ticket purchased in East Ridge is worth $1,000,000 after the Wednesday, April 18 drawing. Missing the jackpot by only one number—the “Powerball”--, the winning ticket matched the remaining five numbers to earn the second-place award. No additional information is available until the prize is claimed.

Overall, the drawing Wednesday evening created over 12,700 winning tickets in Tennessee and a Powerball jackpot that now stands at $152 million for Saturday night.

This is the 89th ticket sold in Tennessee of a million dollars or more since the Lottery began in 2004.
