NASHVILLE - The million-dollar winners keep coming at the Tennessee Lottery! The MEGA MILLIONS drawing held on March 1st created a $1 million win for a player who purchased a ticket in Ardmore. Since the player used the MEGAPLIER option, the prize for matching all five white balls is a guaranteed $1 million. Without the MEGAPLIER, the prize would have been $250,000.
Meanwhile, excitement is building throughout the state about Friday’s TENNESSEE CASH drawing, which has a jackpot of $1.07 million. If that jackpot is hit, it would be the third win this week of $1 million or more and the 73rd such win in Tennessee Lottery history. Tuesday, a player from Hixson claimed a prize of $2 million won by playing the instant-ticket game, “2 Million Bonanza.”
