NASHVILLE - The Powerball jackpot continues to climb and is estimated at $290 million for the next drawing on Saturday, October 15. Although no player matched all six numbers correctly in Wednesday night’s drawing, one player won $200,000 by matching 5 numbers. There were 109,957 winners who purchased tickets from retailers in the state of Tennessee. By selecting the Power Play option, 19,196 players multiplied their winnings by five.

Two lucky Tennessee Lottery players will share the $240,000 Lotto 5 jackpot from last night’s drawing. One winning ticket was purchased in Murfreesboro, and the other winning ticket was purchased in Milan. No additional information is available until the players claim the prize.
