For the second time in just over a week, a Tennessee Lottery player in Greeneville won a six-figure prize playing Powerball. Last night's drawing created 14,995 total winning Powerball tickets in Tennessee, including a $150,000 winner in Greeneville and a $50,000 winner in Hermitage. And on Nov. 22, an as-yet-unknown Greeneville player won $100,000 playing the popular game.
Although these players matched the same number combination, the prize amounts differ because of the Power Play option. All three winners matched 4 of 5 white balls drawn plus the Powerball, which has a base prize of $50,000. But if a player adds the Power Play option for a dollar, the prize is multiplied by the Power Play number drawn. Last night's Power Play number was three, which made the Greeneville winner's prize $150,000.
No information is available about the winners until the prizes are claimed.
