NASHVILLE - There are 10 new reasons for Tennessee Powerball players to choose Power Play this month during the “10 Times” promotion, which offers the chance to win up to $2 million!

“Promotions such as this create excitement and are an easy way for players to win additional money,” said Rebecca Paul, CEO and President of the Tennessee Education Lottery. “It’s also a great way to raise awareness of the game and raise more dollars for the education programs we fund.”

Here’s how it works:

Before every Powerball drawing, a Power Play wheel is spun to select a multiplier between 2 and 5. During the month of March, beginning with Saturday’s drawing, one of the four 5s on the wheel will be replaced with a 10.

For an additional $1, a Powerball player can select the Power Play option, which means any prize (except the jackpot) will be multiplied by the number selected on the wheel for that drawing. With the “Power Play 10 Times” promotion, this means a player could win up to $2 million!

“Power Play 10 Times” will run for at least 8 drawings. If the 10 isn’t selected during that time, the promotion will continue until it is hit.

Powerball drawings are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9:59 p.m. CST (10:59 p.m. EST).

The Tennessee Lottery began selling tickets on January 20, 2004. As of Dec. 31, 2005, the Lottery has raised more than $487 million to fund specific education programs, including college scholarships, pre-kindergarten and after-school programs.
