Two Tennessee Lottery Powerball players, one in Memphis and one in Brentwood, won $150,000 each last night thanks to the "Powerball Power Play" option. The players each matched 4 of 5 white balls drawn plus the Powerball, which has a base prize of $50,000. And since they added the Power Play option for a dollar, the prize was multiplied by the Power Play number drawn, which was 3.
There were a total of 13,323 winning Powerball tickets in Tennessee after the drawing. No information is available about the winners until the prizes are claimed.
