Nashville, TN (WDEF) – Some lucky Powerball players won in Mt. Juliet and Memphis, totaling $150,000 and $50,000 respectively from last night’s drawing.
The jackpot for Powerball has grown to $345 million, while Mega Millions stands at $654 million for the drawing on Tuesday.
The Powerball player winners won by matching four of the five white numbers drawn, plus the red Powerball, which is a base prize of $50,000.
Since the Mt. Juliet winner added the Power Play option for an extra dollar, the base prize of $50,000 was tripled, as the multiplier number last night was three.
No information about the winners is available until the prizes are claimed.
The Lottery has raised more than $4.4 billion to fund designated education programs, including after-school programs, scholarships, and the Governor’s Drive to 55 initiatives.
