MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Someone in Memphis is $150,000 richer after Saturday's Powerball drawing.
According to the Tennessee Education Lottery, the player matched four out of five white balls plus the red Powerball to win $50,000. Because the player chose the Power Play feature for an extra $1 and the Power Play number drawn was 3, the prize of $50,000 was tripled to $150,000.
The ticket was sold at Mapco Express, 3161 Highway 61 in Memphis.
Additionally, a Powerball player in Putnam County won $1 million by matching 5 of the 5 white balls to win. It was the 335th ticket of $1 million or more sold since the lottery began selling tickets on Jan. 20, 2004.
The ticket was sold at a Circle K in Cookeville.
The current estimated Powerball jackpot is $416 million and the next drawing is Monday, December 27.
