NASHVILLE – Hot days and hot nights are what summer is all about, but with the introduction of the Tennessee Lottery’s newest instant game, this summer is also about hot money! The new $1 instant ticket, “Hot Money,” offers players the chance to win up to $5,000 on the spot. Lottery retailers across the state will add the new game to their current instant game selections this week.

Details about the latest instant ticket game include:

Hot Money, a red and black $1 ticket, is a game in which players can instantly win up to $5,000. Match any of your numbers to either of the winning numbers and win the prize shown for that number. Overall odds are 1 in 4.02.

The Tennessee Lottery began selling its first instant tickets on Jan. 20, 2004. At the end of its first fiscal year, after just five months and 12 days of ticket sales, the Lottery had transferred more than $123 million to the Tennessee Lottery for Education account, as well as more than $2 million for after-school programs. All Tennessee Lottery profits will go to pay for specific education programs in the state, which initially include HOPE Scholarships. For more details about the Tennessee Lottery, visit .
