A Powerball lottery ticket worth $50,000 on Wednesday was sold in Rutherford County, lottery officials announced.
The ticket was purchased at the Neighborhood Market, 111A Dick Buchanan St. in La Vergne. The ticket matched four of the five white numbers and the red Powerball to win $50,000.
No ticket matched all of the numbers so the Powerball jackpot increased to an estimated $640 million. The next drawing is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 16.
The estimated $640 million jackpot is the largest it has been in nearly two years – since March 2019 – and it is the fifth largest in Powerball history and ninth largest in U.S. lottery history.
