NASHVILLE—For a limited time, the Tennessee Lottery is offering a chance to win a prize of $2 million as part of its Power Play 10X Powerball Promotion. Ticket sales for this special promotion begin Thursday, April 29, with the first drawing to be held Saturday, May 1.
“Players look forward to the 10X promotion and so do we,” said Rebecca Hargrove, President and CEO of the Lottery. “It’s not often I can announce that someone has multiplied their winnings by ten while helping education!”
Here’s how Power Play 10X works:

• As always, Powerball players have the option to add Power Play to any play for an additional $1. This choice means any non-jackpot win is multiplied from 2 to 5 times.
• However, from April 29 through May 29, a “10” replaces one of the “5s” in the field of numbers to be selected from before each Powerball drawing.
• If the “10” is chosen, then any non-jackpot prize is multiplied by 10. Since the top non-jackpot Powerball prize is $200,000, a player can win $2 million when the “10” is selected and if the player has added Power Play.
• The promotion will run from April 29 through May 29. If a “10” is not chosen during this time, the promotion will continue until a “10” is selected.
Powerball tickets are available at more than 5,000 Tennessee Lottery retailer locations throughout the state. Drawings are held on Wednesday and Saturday at 10 p.m. CT/11 p.m. ET.
