NASHVILLE — Wednesday night's POWERBALL drawing created lots of good news for Tennessee! First, a Power Play Powerball ticket sold in Covington matched all five white numbers, which makes it a $1 million prize. Next, a ticket sold in Knoxville also matched five white numbers but didn't use Power Play, which makes it a $200,000 prize. And finally, the jackpot rolled and grew to a whopping $150 million for Saturday's drawing, which will continue to generate interest and dollars for education programs in the state.
