Somewhere in the state of Tennessee, there is a very excited person. Perhaps a very excited group of people. That's because one ticket sold in Saturday night's Powerball multi-state lottery drawing matched all the numbers. That ticket was sold in Tennessee.
The amount of money the winning ticket is worth is $421 million. Should the principles involved choose to take the one-time cash payout, their big check will be for about $257 million dollars.
The jackpot had been growing since September 17th. Officials with Powerball say the winning ticket was purchased in Lafayette. That's in Marion County Tennessee. This is the sixth time a jackpot-winning Powerball ticket has been sold in Tennessee.
