A lucky Tennessee Lottery player who purchased a Powerball ticket in Nashville is sure to have spent Thanksgiving day dreaming about what to do with his or her $2 million, won from the drawing held the night before. The lucky Powerball ticket was purchased at Sudden Service, 2400 Lebanon Road in Nashville, and matched five of six numbers drawn Wednesday night. The prize for matching five of six numbers drawn is $1 million, but since the player added the Power Play option for an extra dollar, the prize was doubled. No additional information about the winner is available until the prize is claimed.
