NASHVILLE - The weather has turned cool but the weekend news at the Tennessee Lottery is nothing but hot! Over 28,000 winning tickets were purchased including one winning ticket sold in Kingsport that matched all 5 numbers to win the $173,518 Pick 5 jackpot. In addition, the much anticipated arrival of "Tennessee Cash" is here!

Beginning today, The Tennessee Lottery is offering players a new way to win cash jackpots with “Tennessee Cash,” a drawing-style game only available in Tennessee. The kick-off jackpot will be $200,000, and future jackpot amounts will be based on sales.
