NASHVILLE - A $1 million Powerball win for a lucky Memphis player Wednesday night is the second time this week for Shelby County players to make Tennessee Lottery news headlines. The Lottery won’t know who won last night’s $1 million until the prize is claimed, but congratulations were handed out yesterday—along with a $380,000 prize—to a Bartlett couple who won Monday night’s Tennessee Cash jackpot.
While Nancy and Don Corzine of Bartlett have yet to decide what they will do first with their Tennessee Cash jackpot winnings, the thrill of the win itself carried the day. “We just can’t believe it!”
Meanwhile, the Powerball jackpot continues to rise and stands at $196 million for Saturday. Other Tennessee Lottery jackpot games include Mega Millions with a $19 million jackpot for Friday; Hot Lotto with a $7.21 million jackpot (all-cash with withholding taxes paid) for Saturday; and the state’s own Tennessee Cash jackpot game, with a $220,000 jackpot for Friday.
