The New Year has started with a bang for Tennessee Lottery Powerball players! Last night’s drawing created 61,741 winning tickets in the state, including a $150,000 winner in Memphis and winners in Nashville and Covington of $50,000 each. Additionally, the jackpot has soared to over a half-billion dollars at $550 million for Saturday’s drawing.
These three players matched four white ball numbers plus the Powerball in last night’s drawing, which has a base prize of $50,000. But the Memphis player won $150,000 because he or she added the Power Play multiplier option for an extra dollar. Last night’s multiplier was three.
This makes a total of 20 Tennessee players to win this prize level in less than two months.
No information is available about the winners until the prizes are claimed.
