NASHVILLE (AP) - A $144.1 million Powerball prize has been claimed in Tennessee, a month after the ticket matched the lottery game's winning numbers, but the purchaser of the ticket remains unknown.

A news release from the Tennessee Lottery said Avondale Revocable Trust claimed the prize on Thursday in Nashville, choosing to receive the lump sum of $89.7 million rather than annual payments.

The ticket was purchased at Hobson Tobacco and Beer in Nashville. The owner of the store received $25,000 for selling the ticket.

The release says it is the second largest prize and fourth Powerball jackpot won in Tennessee. A Mega Millions jackpot has also been won in Tennessee.

Powerball is played in 44 states; Washington, D.C.; Puerto Rico; and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
