ARDMORE, TN (WAFF) - One lucky person in Ardmore won $50,000 in the Powerball drawing Wednesday night. The ticket was bought on the Magic Mile in Ardmore, just three minutes from the Alabama state line.
This isn’t the first time True Discount in Ardmore has seen a winner. It has sold nearly a dozen Powerball and Tennessee Cash winning tickets in the last several years.
Owner Tammy Lewis says not a lot of people stop into her store since it’s farther into Tennessee. However, with the luck people have been having there, you may want to place your bets somewhere new.
“They got like four numbers in the Powerball, so that’s $50,000. We’ve had some bigger ones, but not on Powerball. We had $320,000 on Tennessee Cash, but that’s the highest Powerball we’ve had so far. So, we’re waiting on the millions,” Lewis said.
The next Tennessee Powerball will be drawn on Saturday.
The Alabama Senate passed a lottery bill last week, so there may b a lucky winner in this state soon.
The bill is headed to House committee next week. If it passes through committee, it’ll go to the House floor.
People in north Alabama will still have to head Tennessee to play for now.
