Winning ticket for Powerball’s $420.9 million jackpot sold in Tennessee
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The winning ticket for the $420.9 million Powerball jackpot draw on Saturday was sold in Lafayette, Tennessee, officials there said.
CBS Chattanooga affiliate WDEF-TV reports the winning ticket, which matched all six Powerball numbers drawn Saturday, Nov. 26, is also the 200th ticket sold by the Tennessee Lottery.
The prize was on the brink of becoming one of the largest jackpots in U.S. history if it kept rolling with no lucky winners. A record-setting $1.5 billion Powerball jackpot was reached in January.
The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are one in 292.2 million. The popular game is played in 44 states plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
