A POWERBALL ticket sold in Nashville is worth $1 million after Saturday night's drawing, making it the 103rd ticket of a million dollars or more sold since the Lottery began nine years ago. That drawing pushed the POWERBALL jackpot to a whopping $151 million, while the jackpot for TENNESSEE CASH rose to $545,000 over the weekend. The MEGA MILLIONS jackpot of $89 million was won in New Jersey on Friday night. No additional information about the Nashville winner is available until the prize is claimed.
