NASHVILLE - A player who purchased a Lotto 5 ticket in Nashville will win the $169,172 jackpot from Wednesday night’s drawing for that game. No additional information is available until the player claims the prize.

The Powerball jackpot continues to climb and is estimated at $195 million for the next drawing on Saturday, April 8. Although no player matched all six numbers correctly in Wednesday night’s drawing, there were 49,382 winners who purchased tickets from retailers in the state of Tennessee. By selecting the Power Play option, 11,770 players multiplied their winnings by two.
