This is why we always recommend playing online. No one has yet come forward to claim the $144.1 million Powerball Win
According to a Tennessee State Lottery, winning ticket was purchased at a store in Antioch.
“Rebecca Hargrove, Lottery President and CEO, presented the store owner with a $25,000 selling bonus check today at the Lottery’s Nashville headquarters,” spokeswoman Kym Gerlock said in a news release.
“Meanwhile, no word about who is holding the winning ticket. Lottery officials advise that lucky ticket-holder to sign the back of the ticket, keep it in a secure location, consult with a financial advisor, and call the Lottery headquarters in Nashville before coming to claim the prize.”
The Powerball win came on the draw that was held Wednesday 9th November. The winning numbers were 2-12-17-20-65, and the Powerball was 17.
If the prize isn’t claimed, no information will be known about the winner.
The winner has 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim the prize. Had they been played online, they would have been notified of their Powerball win and would probably be on a beach somewhere watching baby crabs crawl over their feet.
This is the second-largest overall prize and the fourth Powerball jackpot win for the Tennessee Lottery. The biggest prize was in June 2014 when someone won $259.8 million in Knoxville. Other Powerball jackpot wins in Tennessee were $50 million in Knox County in March and $25.5 million in South Pittsburgh in March 2005.
