The weather is icy cold but the news is sizzling hot at the Tennessee Lottery, as the million-dollar wins keep coming! Last night's Powerball drawing created nearly 21,000 wins in Tennessee, one of which was a $1 million win for a player who purchased the ticket in Memphis. This is the third prize of $1 million or more in two weeks and the 52nd such win since the Lottery's inception.
No additional information about the Memphis win is available until the player claims the prize.

The Tennessee Education Lottery operates entirely from the revenue it generates through the sale of its products. Net proceeds from sales of Lottery tickets, currently averaging over $5 million per week, fund specific education programs, including college scholarships, pre-kindergarten and after-school programs. Since the Tennessee Lottery began selling tickets on Jan. 20, 2004, it has raised more than $1.5 billion for these programs, and returned nearly $3.4 billion in prizes and more than $375 million in retailer commissions.
