NASHVILLE - Tennessee Lottery Cash 3 players have a chance to see more green at no extra cost through a new “Green Ball Promotion.” The special promotion, which begins Monday, January 9 and runs through Saturday, January 28, will pay additional prize money if the Green Ball is selected from an additional ball machine added to the current three machines used in Cash 3 drawings.

“The Green Ball Promotion is a fun way to promote Cash 3 and give players a chance to win bigger prizes at no extra cost,” said Rebecca Paul, CEO and President of the Tennessee Lottery. “We anticipate additional interest in the game with this promotion, which will mean more dollars for the educational programs we fund.”

Here’s how it works:

During the Green Ball Promotion, there will be a fourth draw machine that will hold nine white balls and one Green Ball. Before the regular winning Cash 3 numbers are drawn, another ball will be pulled from the first machine during the midday and evening Cash 3 drawings. If the ball is green, and a player matches the winning numbers, that person could win up to $599!

Every time the Green Ball is drawn before January 28, that ball machine will be reset with nine white balls and one Green Ball.

Cash 3 drawings are held twice daily. Midday drawings are held Monday through Saturday at 12:28 p.m. CST (1:28 p.m. EST). Evening drawings are telecast every night at 6:28 p.m. CST (7:28 p.m. EST). Look for winning numbers and the Green Ball results during midday news and television broadcasts, visit, or call Player Services at 1-877-7TN-PLAY. In the Metro Nashville area, call 615.254.4WIN, Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.

The Tennessee Lottery began selling tickets on January 20, 2004. As of Sept. 30, 2005, the Lottery had raised more than $415 million to fund specific education programs, including college scholarships, pre-kindergarten and after-school programs.
