How about a cool $1,000…not just once, but once a week for an entire year? That’s what Dorothy Adams, of Somerville, AL, won this week playing the Tennessee Lottery’s instant ticket game, “Weekly Grand.” Dorothy says she will split the $52,000 prize with her husband. Congrats to Dorothy!

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 $1.6 billion for these programs, and returned nearly $3.6 billion in prizes and nearly $393 million in retailer commissions.
