NASVILLE - A Powerball jackpot ticket was sold in Missouri to win Wednesday night’s drawing of the $258.5 million prize. In addition, more than 50,000 winning Powerball tickets were purchased in Tennessee creating happy winners and additional revenue for Lottery-funded programs.

But Powerball’s not the only game in town! Jackpots have grown for Tennessee’s other drawing-style games. MEGA MILLIONS stands at a whopping $166 million and PICK 5 has grown to $100,000 for Friday night’s drawings. POWERBALL begins a new run with a $20 million jackpot for Saturday night’s drawing.
