Two Powerball players in west Tennessee--one in Stanton (Haywood County) and the other in Memphis--are each holding a Powerball ticket worth $100,000 after the drawing held March 3, 2018.
The players won the six-figure prizes last night by matching four white ball numbers plus the Powerball, which has a base prize of $50,000. But since both of the lucky players added the Power Play multiplier option for an extra dollar, the prize was multiplied by last night's multiplier, which was two.
No information is known about the winners until the prizes are claimed. The Powerball jackpot has climbed to $348 million for Wednesday's drawing.
