South Pittsburg has a new millionaire.

The Tennessee Lottery says a lucky Tennessee Cash player in South Pittsburg won a near-record jackpot of $2,060,705 Friday night.

That person has not come forward to claim their prize, nor have they been identified.

But lottery officials say the store where the ticket was sold is the Lotto Mart at 519 East 12th Street North.

Lottery officials say the store gets a $5,000 bonus for selling the lucky ticket.

Also on Friday, a Knoxville Powerball player won $50,000 Saturday night by matching four of the five white numbers drawn plus the red Powerball.

The $315.3 million Powerball jackpot was won in New Jersey.

You can watch the Powerball drawing live on NewsChannel 9 each Wednesday and Saturday night, right before our 11 p.m. newscast.
