NASHVILLE-Saturday night's Powerball drawing created yet another $2 million winner for the week, this time in Jackson. The ticket is the 116th Tennessee Lottery ticket worth $1 million or more since tickets went on sale in January 2004. The lucky Powerball ticket purchased in Jackson matched five numbers drawn in Saturday night's Powerball drawing, which is a guaranteed million-dollar prize--but since the player added the Power Play option for an extra dollar, the prize is increased to $2 million. Earlier this week a Powerball player in Mt. Juliet enjoyed the same excitement, matching 5 numbers with the Power Play in Wednesday's drawing.
No additional information about the Jackson winner is available until the prize is claimed.
In addition to the exciting $2 million win, the weekend drawings created even larger jackpots for all of the Lottery's drawing style games. Please see tnlottery.com for details.
