NASHVILLE - Powerball rolled into Tennessee Monday, April 19 with a bang, offering a jackpot of more than $90 million in addition to a variety of other cash prizes.

“More than 4,000 retailers across the state are busy greeting excited customers who have finally gotten their wish¬—to play Powerball right at home,” said Rebecca Paul, Tennessee Lottery CEO and president.

“Early reports indicate brisk sales and a smooth kickoff,” said Paul. “Even more important: More games and more players mean more dollars for the students of Tennessee.”

Powerball, a multi-state lotto game, gives players a chance to win one of nine different cash prizes, including a multimillion-dollar jackpot.

Paul, along with Sen. Steve Cohen; Rep. Chris Newton; Tennessee Lottery Board Chair Denny Bottorff and other board members; invited members of the General Assembly; and Lottery employees were to celebrate the launch of Powerball at the organization’s Nashville headquarters today.

Basics of playing Powerball include: For just $1 per play, players can try their luck to win one of nine different prizes by selecting five numbers, from 1 to 53, plus a sixth number from 1 to 42—the Powerball. Overall odds of winning are 1:36.

In addition to the multimillion-dollar Jackpot, players have a chance to win eight other prizes, from $3 to $100,000. And, for an additional $1 per play, there is also a Power Play option, which can multiply the non-jackpot winnings by 2 to 5 times—meaning that Power Play participants can win up to $500,000.

Powerball drawings are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9:59 p.m. CST (10:59 p.m. EST). Watch for drawings at 10 p.m. CST (11 p.m. EST) on official Tennessee Lottery television stations throughout Tennessee.

As with all Tennessee Lottery games, profits from Powerball tickets sold in Tennessee remain in the state and go to fund education programs. Most immediately, the Lottery is charged with raising at least $88 million by July 1 in order to fund scholarships for an estimated 65,000 students expected to attend Tennessee colleges and universities in the fall.
