NASHVILLE - As Californians check their Powerball tickets to see who won the $425.3 million jackpot from the drawing held Feb. 20, Tennessee players should also be on alert—the drawing created 50,998 winning tickets in the state, two worth $1 million each. The winning local tickets were sold in LaVergne and Milledgeville, creating a new total of 135 Tennessee players who have won $1 million or more since inception.
The Tennessee Lottery reminds all Powerball winners to sign the back of their tickets and to be mindful of the 180-day claim period.
