13 LUCKY PLAYERS WIN A TOTAL OF $4.3 MILLION IN PLAY IT AGAIN! DRAWING Back NASHVILLE – Thirteen lucky Tennessee Education Lottery (TEL) players won more than $4.3 million total this week by entering eligible non-winning instant tickets into the December Play It Again! drawing. Three of those winners are a $1,000,000 richer after entering TEL’s popular program. “If anybody asks me if they should play, I say, ‘Yeah, play,’” Gallatin resident John Caputo said. He won $1 million after entering an Instant Bankroll game ticket into the program. Jonesborough native Josh Spain won $1 million from a Tennessee Millions ticket entry, and he will pay off his mortgage with his winnings, among other plans. “I’ll also split it with my dad,” he said. Lisa McArthur plays regularly in Ardmore, Tenn. She won $250,000 on a $500 Madness ticket, and just two months ago had a conversation with her local store clerk about the Play It Again! program. When TEL president and CEO Rebecca Hargrove called her, McArthur said she couldn’t believe it.
