NASHVILLE - Tennessee Lottery retailers will receive an incentive for paying prizes to players who win in Cash 3 and Cash 4 as part of exciting additions to the games beginning Sunday. In addition to the cashing incentive, the Lottery is adding midday drawings for both of the numbers-pick games, giving players more chances to play and win.

“The additions we’re making to Cash 3 and Cash 4 will not only benefit retailers and players, but also the students and families of Tennessee,“ said Rebecca Paul, CEO and President of the Tennessee Lottery. “Increasing sales for these two games is just another way to maximize revenues for education.”

These changes to the two games are designed to increase excitement and give players more chances to play and win. Details include:

Retailer Cashing Bonus: Lottery retailers will receive 1 percent of each Cash 3 and Cash 4 prize paid. (Retailers are allowed to pay prizes up to $599.) Prizes for Cash 3 range from $40 to $500, while prizes for Cash 4 range from $100 to $5,000.

Midday Drawings: The Lottery will hold the new midday drawings at 12:28 p.m. CST (1:28 p.m. EST) Monday through Saturday beginning Nov. 21. (Ticket sales for midday drawings begin Nov. 20). Evening drawings will continue to be held every night at 6:28 p.m. CST (7:28 p.m. EST).
