NASHVILLE - Last night’s Powerball drawing will mean a $400,000 win for one player who purchased a ticket in Eads, and selected the Power Play option. Since the Power Play number was 4, the $100,000 winning ticket will be quadrupled.

Another player who purchased a ticket in Pigeon Forge—and didn’t choose the Power Play—will win $100,000. Meanwhile, the jackpot continues to grow and is estimated at $171 million for Wednesday night’s drawing.
