NASHVILLE – A player in North Carolina won the $74.5 million Powerball jackpot after Wednesday night’s drawing for that game. In addition, a $200,000 ticket was won in Knoxville, and a $200,000 winning ticket became a $600,000 winning ticket in Lenoir City in Loudon County because the player chose to use the Power Play option!
