NASHVILLE— For the third time in less than a month, a Tennessee Lottery player has won a million dollars playing Mega Millions. This time it's an as-yet-unknown millionaire who purchased the ticket in Kingston (Roane County) and matched five of six numbers drawn Friday night. The other two winning tickets were purchased in Eads (Shelby County) and Brentwood (Williamson County).
In other weekend news, a Powerball player in Knoxville won $150,000 by matching four of the five white numbers drawn plus the red Powerball. Since the winner added the Power Play option for an extra dollar, the base prize of $50,000 was tripled, as the multiplier number was three.
No information about the winners is available until the prizes are claimed.
