NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Someone from Erin, Tennessee, in Houston County won $2 million in Saturday’s Powerball drawing.
There was also a $200,000 winner in Memphis among the 96,127 winners across the entire state.
Lottery officials the $2 million winner matched 5 of the white numbers draw, just one shy of a jackpot win, and the $200,000 winner matches four of the white numbers.
Both players added the “Power Play” option for an extra dollar, which multiplied their winnings.
The current jackpot stands at $650 million, which is the second largest in Powerball’s history and the third largest in North American lottery history.
Powerball is a popular drawing-style game that has generated an estimated $727.9 million for education in Tennessee. Tennessee has seen six jackpot winners since April 2004.
Powerball’s record jackpot is $1.586 billion, won by a Tennessee family in Munford and winners in Florida and California in January 2016.
