NASHVILLE - The Lotto 5 jackpot grows again after Monday night’s drawing and hits an estimated $240,000 for Wednesday night’s draw. Powerball stands at an estimated $20 million.

Last night’s Lotto 5 drawing produced a total of 1,616 winners, including 34 players who each won $271 and 1,582 players who each won $9.

In other news, excitement continues to grow as the final early bird drawing for Million $ Madness approaches. This is a raffle-style game that will award four prizes of $1 million each on January 22, 2008. The last of seven early-bird drawings is Friday, Dec. 21... so the sooner players purchase a ticket, the more chances they have to win.

Please visit and click on “winning numbers” for complete detailed charts on the both drawings.

Lotto 5 drawings are broadcast Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights at 10:34 p.m. CT (11:34 p.m. ET); Powerball drawings are broadcast Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9:59 p.m. CT (10:59 p.m. ET).
