The weekend drawings created thousands of winners and brought great news to a player in Memphis who won $2 million in the Powerball drawing held Saturday, Oct. 11. The player’s ticket matched five numbers drawn, 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 an incredible $2 million! No additional information about the winner is available until the prize is claimed. (Please note all Lottery offices are closed Monday.)
