“Excitement is building about the first in-state million-dollar jackpot,” said Rebecca Paul, CEO and President of the Tennessee Lottery.

NASHVILLE - What to do with a million dollars? One Tennessee Lottery player could face that challenge if there is a single winner of the record-breaking Lotto 5 jackpot, which climbed to an estimated $1 million after Wednesday night’s drawing.

“Excitement is building about the first in-state million-dollar jackpot,” said Rebecca Paul, CEO and President of the Tennessee Lottery.

“When jackpots reach record levels, we raise even more dollars for education.”

In addition to the $1 million jackpot estimated for Friday night’s Lotto 5 drawing, the Powerball jackpot continues to swell. Since there was no grand-prize winner in that game after last night’s drawing, the jackpot is estimated at $83 million for Saturday night’s drawing.

Although no player matched all five numbers correctly in Wednesday night’s Lotto 5 drawing, 108 players matched four numbers to win $189 each, while 3,084 players matched three numbers correctly and will collect $10 each.

In the Powerball drawing, also held on Wednesday night, there were 33,105 winners who purchased tickets in Tennessee.

Lotto 5 drawings are held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights at 10:34 p.m. CST (11:34 p.m. EST); Powerball drawings are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9:59 p.m. CST (10:59 p.m. EST). Watch for both drawings on official Tennessee Lottery television stations throughout the state.

The Tennessee Lottery began selling its first tickets on January 20, 2004. Proceeds as of March 31, 2005 have resulted in transfers to the Lottery for Education Account of more than $291 million, in addition to more than $2 million for after-school programs. All Lottery profits go to pay for specific education programs in Tennessee, which initially include college scholarships.
