Knoxvile (WVLT) -- That was quick!

For the second time this week the Powerball Jackpot was hit. The lucky ticket was sold in Arizona and matched all 6 numbers to win Saturday's $15 million jackpot. The winner has yet to come forward and will have to decide on taking the lump sum amount which is $7,002,801 or the 29-year, 30-installment annuity.

3 tickets matched 5 numbers and had the Power Play option giving each ticket holder $1 million.

2 tickets matched 5 numbers winning $200,000.

A total of 471,539 winning tickets were sold for the Saturday jackpot, excluding the jackpot. Since the Wednesday jackpot, $19.5 million tickets were sold for Saturday's drawing.
