Last night’s drawings for three of the Tennessee Lottery’s games created big winners in each: a $1 million Powerball ticket sold in Mountain City; a $320,000 Tennessee Cash jackpot winning ticket sold in Gleason; and a lucky $90,000 Hot Lotto ticket sold in Murfreesboro.
The big wins added to the excitement of last night’s Powerball drawing for a $425 million jackpot, which was hit by three tickets—two in New Jersey and one in Minnesota. (The jackpot ended up being $448 million). The drawing created 74,800 winning tickets in Tennessee, including the $1 million winner.
No information about the Tennessee prize winners is available until the prizes are claimed.
