Co-Workers from Nashville Share $50,000 Powerball Prize

A group of colleagues from the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee are celebrating their recent Powerball win, as the co-workers, who had been entering Powerball together for “two or three” months, landed a Match 4 plus Powerball prize of $50,000. 


What were the winning Powerball numbers? 

The group, comprising of 11 employees, bought their ticket for the Powerball drawing on October 11th, 2017, and matched 4 main numbers out of five, plus the Powerball number. The winning numbers were 1, 3, 13, 19, 69, Powerball 23 and the Power Play number was 2x. The group were just one number short of the top prize and there was no jackpot winner in the drawing.
