NASHVILLE--As the Powerball jackpot continues to rise--now at $455 million--thousands of players win cash from the game's eight additional prize levels. This includes two Tennessee players who won $150,000 each in Ardmore and Fayetteville last night, and another in Munford who won $50,000.
All three winners matched four white ball numbers plus the Powerball, which has a base prize of $50,000. But since the Ardmore and Fayetteville players added the Power Play option for an extra dollar, the prize was multiplied by last night's multiplier, which was three.
No information is known about the winners until the prizes are claimed.
Also last night, a Minnesota Lottery player became the first jackpot winner ($22.8 million) in Lotto America, a drawing-style game launched in 13 states--including Tennessee--last fall.
