And it’s Tennessee again! For the sixth time, a Tennessee Lottery player has won a Powerball jackpot—this time it’s a $420.9 million grand prize for a very lucky person who purchased a ticket in Lafayette (Macon County). The winner can choose to be paid over 30 years or the lump sum option which is about $254.7 million. The incredible ticket, which matched all six Powerball numbers drawn Saturday, Nov. 26, is also the 200th ticket sold by the Tennessee Lottery worth $1 million or more.
The Lottery advises the as-yet unknown ticket-holder to sign the back of the ticket, keep it in a secure location, consult with a financial advisor, and call the Lottery’s headquarters in Nashville before coming to claim the prize. The winner has 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim the prize.
Due to increased sales, the original estimated jackpot of $403 million soared to $420.9 million for Saturday's drawing.
This is the second largest overall prize for the Tennessee Lottery—the first was the $528.8 million Powerball prize won by a Munford family in January 2016, who split the $1.58 billion world-record jackpot with winners in two other states.
