The holidays have become quite a bit merrier for a Powerball player in Brentwood who won $1 million playing Saturday night’s Powerball game! The lucky player’s ticket matched all five white balls to win the second-place prize of $1 million in the popular game. This becomes the 99th ticket sold in Tennessee worth one-million dollars or more since the Lottery’s inception. No additional information is available until the player redeems the prize.

In other news, a $35 million Mega Millions jackpot ticket was purchased in California.
