NASHVILLE - A lucky player who purchased a Tennessee Cash ticket in Sparta will start the New Year $300,000 ahead thanks to a jackpot win from Friday night's drawing! That game, along with the Powerball and Mega Millions weekend drawings, created thousands of winners throughout the state. No additional information about the Sparta winner is available until the prize is claimed.
