NASHVILLE – It's a busy week at the Tennessee Lottery, with two Powerball winners of $200,000 each from last night's drawing, and excitement continuing to build about tomorrow's Million $ Madness Early Bird drawing.
Powerball tickets purchased in Nashville and Murfreesboro matched all five white balls, which means each ticket is worth $200,000 each. No additional information is available until the players claim their prizes. The jackpot for this popular game continues to grow and is now estimated at $109 million for Saturday night's drawing.
In other game news, players have until midnight to purchase a Million $ Madness ticket to be eligible for tomorrow's Early-Bird drawing. This drawing is the second of seven such drawings that will award 10 cash prizes. In addition to the Early-Bird Drawings, Million $ Madness tickets are entered into the final drawing on Jan. 22, 2008 that will award 514 cash prizes, including four prizes of $1 million each!
