Some lucky someone is holding a $480,000 Tennessee Cash ticket that was purchased in Paris, Tenn. for the drawing held Sept. 11. The ticket—and the player—hit the jackpot for this in-state drawing-style game by matching all six numbers drawn. No additional information is available until the prize is claimed.
Meanwhile, the jackpot amounts for Powerball and Mega Millions continue to soar, as does the excitement surrounding them. Powerball has risen to $317 million for Saturday’s drawing; Mega Millions is at $119 million for Friday.
