Local News

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Saturday’s drawing didn’t see a winner for the Powerball jackpot, but three other winning tickets were announced in the region.

According to a release from Tennessee Lottery, five players matched four out of five white balls and the red Powerball in Saturday’s drawing to win at least $50,000. Three of those players chose the Power Play feature for an extra $1, and because the Power Play number drawn was 3, the $50,000 prize was tripled to $150,000.

Three of the tickets were won within the WATE 6 On Your Side viewing area:

  • $50,000 at Ebenezer Market, 600 Ebenezer Rd in Knoxville
  • $50,000 at Weigel’s, 8410 Middlebrook Pike in Knoxville
  • $150,000 at Vonore Mobile, 1015 Highway 411 in Vonore (Monroe County).

The other two locations include:

  • $150,000 at Friendly Market, 4720 Fort Henry Dr. in Kingsport (Sullivan County)
