NASHVILLE -If the estimated $250 million Powerball jackpot is won Saturday, February 11, it would be the 6th largest jackpot win in Powerball’s history!

Last night’s Powerball draw produced two winners of $200,000 in Tennessee. One ticket was purchased in Nashville and the other ticket was purchased in Fayetteville. A total of 71,564 winners bought tickets from Tennessee retailers. By selecting the Power Play option, 14,353 players multiplied their winnings by five.

A lucky player who purchased a Lotto 5 ticket in Chattanooga will win the $323,678 jackpot from last night’s drawing for that game. No additional information is available until the player claims the prize.
