This has been the first big Powerball jackpot to have been won since the game changes took place in October. The lucky lotto winner won their jackpot in the draw that took place on the 4th of November, Wednesday. No information about the identity of the winner has been released yet until they come forward to claim their prize.
The winning Powerball numbers were drawn on Wednesday and were:
2-12-17-20-65 and the Powerball number 17.
The location of where the ticket was bought was at Hobson Tobacco & Beer in Antioch. The Tennessee Lottery took it upon themselves to issue an advisory on Thursday morning for the winner to sign the back of their winning ticket and to keep it in a very safe place. In addition to that, they also recommended that they consult with a financial advisor and call Nashville headquarters before coming in to collect their huge prize.
All lottery winners have the option to take the cash in one lump sum and expect to pocket $67 million after taxes. This Powerball win is currently the second-largest overall prize and the fourth Powerball jackpot to have been won in Tennessee. Previous Tennessee lottery wins have been:
- $259.8 million in Knoxville, June 2014
- $50 million in Knox County, March 2015
- $25.5 million in South Pittsburgh, TN, March 2005
For your knowledge, the Powerball game was changed in October to make sure bigger jackpots happen and that players have higher chances of winning bigger consolation prizes.
This Tennessee Powerball winner overcame the odds of 1 in 292,201,338 to win the jackpot. This lucky lotto winner has 180 days to claim their Powerball online prize. This means that the player has until the 2nd of May 2016 to come forward.
This Powerball jackpot winner wasn’t the only one who got lucky in that draw, however. There was one player from Wyoming who matched five numbers and took home a $1 million second-tier prize!
In total, 19 Powerball tickets matched four white numbers plus the Powerball and won each of those players a handsome $50,000.
