NASHVILLE- Big wins are blooming like the daffodils across Tennessee as another Lottery Powerball player has won $2 million, this time in Nashville. The lucky ticket matched five of six numbers drawn, which begins as a $1 million prize. Since the player added the “Power Play” option for an extra dollar, the prize was doubled. In addition, a $40 million Powerball jackpot ticket was sold in New Jersey.
Coming on the heels of Saturday’s Powerball drawing that produced a $50 million jackpot winner in Harriman and a $2 million Powerball Power Play winner in Hohenwald, last night’s winner holds the 162nd winning ticket of $1 million or more sold since the Lottery’s inception.
The ticket was purchased at Rosie’s Market, 3900 Charlotte Ave., in Nashville. The retailer location will receive $5,000.
No additional information about the winner is available until the prize is claimed.
