No one in Tennessee won the record-setting $587.5 million Powerball jackpot last month, but two tickets were sold in the Midstate that are worth $1 million each.
Now, both winners have come forward to claim their prize.
The $1 million tickets were sold in Brentwood at a Mapco located at 7108 Moores Lane and in Donelson located at a Kroger at 143 McGavock Pike.
NBC News confirmed there were 54 winning $1 million tickets sold across the U.S. in addition to the pair of jackpot-winning tickets that paid $192 million each to an Arizona man and a family in Missouri.
Neither local million-dollar winner requested publicity, but Tennessee lottery officials said one is a Nashville woman and the other is a Brentwood man.
A total of 190,000 winning tickets were sold in Tennessee, totaling $30.75 million in Powerball sales for the state.
Of that total, some $12.98 million goes to education, and at least $9 million goes to pay the winners.
The buzz around the record-breaking jackpot created sales 13-times higher than a typical drawing, said state lottery officials, and the managers of the stores with winning tickets expect the buzz to bring more shoppers.
"It always does. Last time I sold a $5,000 scratch-off, and that one scratch-off ticket sold a lot more over the past few weeks," said Mapco manager Marcus Garza.
