NASHVILLE - Weekend news is hot at the Tennessee Lottery, with a new jackpot of $3.4 million for the next LOTTO PLUS drawing that was created after Friday night's drawing. That drawing also produced nearly 4,500 winners.

In other news, a ticket purchased in Louisiana matched all Powerball numbers to win the jackpot of $34.1 million. In addition, Jellico, Knoxville and Memphis each had a winner who matched five of five Powerball numbers. Two of those winners purchased Power Play, multiplying their $200,000 win by four for a win of $800,000! Meanwhile, the jackpot for PICK 5 continues to grow and now stands at $450,000 for Monday night.
