NASHVILLE - With three jackpot winners in less than two weeks, the Tennessee Lottery’s Lotto 5 game is generating excitement throughout the state! A player who purchased a Lotto 5 ticket in Knoxville is the third jackpot winner for that game in less than two weeks and will win $80,209. No additional information is available until the player claims the prize.

A winning $200,000 ticket for last night’s Powerball draw was purchased in Lexington in Henderson County. In addition, there were 40,856 winners who purchased tickets from retailers in Tennessee. By selecting the Power Play option, 9,032 players multiplied their winnings by five. The estimated jackpot for Saturday’s Powerball drawing is $135 million.
