Antioch lotto winner claims prize, remains anonymous

header_logo_bottomThe second largest prize and fourth Powerball jackpot won in Tennessee was claimed today at the Tennessee Lottery’s Nashville headquarters. The $144.1 million ticket, purchased at Hobson Tobacco and Beer, 2216 Hobson Pike in Antioch, was claimed by the Avondale Revocable Trust.

In addition to the four Powerball jackpots, a Mega Millions jackpot has also been won in Tennessee.

The ticket matched all six Powerball numbers drawn November 4, 2015, to win the $144.1 million jackpot. Avondale Revocable Trust chose to receive the lump sum of $89,795,622 rather than the estimated annuitized amount of $144.1 million. The owner of Hobson Tobacco and Beer received $25,000 for selling the ticket.

Since the Tennessee Education Lottery began selling tickets January 20, 2004, it has sold 177 winning tickets worth $1 million or more, and has generated more than $3.5 billion for education programs in Tennessee.
