NASHVILLE - Nearly 24,000 winning Powerball tickets were purchased in Tennessee including a $200,000 winning ticket for a lucky Dresden player who matched all five white balls. In addition, a player in Nashville correctly matched all 5 numbers in Friday night’s Pick 5 drawing to win the $100,000 jackpot. No additional information is available until the winners come forward to claim their prize.
