NASHVILLE— Last night's thrilling Powerball drawing created 193,147 winning tickets in Tennessee--five worth $200,000 and another worth $50,000. Two $200,000 tickets were sold at different locations in Antioch, the others in Denmark, Knoxville and Arlington. A $50,000 winning ticket was also sold in Antioch. The gargantuan $758.7 million jackpot was won in Massachusetts, culminating the thrilling Powerball run.

The Tennessee Lottery players who purchased the tickets noted above won by matching 4 of the 5 white numbers drawn plus the red Powerball number, which is a $50,000 base prize. Those who won $200,000 added the “Power Play” option for an extra dollar, multiplying their winnings by 4, which was the Power Play number drawn last night. 

Powerball is a popular drawing-style game that has generated more than $731 million for education in Tennessee. Tennessee has seen six Powerball jackpot winners since April 2004, and the Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation has raised more than $4 billion for education since it began in January 2004.
