NASHVILLE - Powerball and Lotto 5 jackpots continue to climb through the holidays, growing to $32 million and $85,000, respectively.

As the jackpots continue to grow, more than 26,000 Tennessee players won prizes after the weekend drawings. Friday night's Lotto 5 drawing produced 1,253 winners of second and third prizes, while the Saturday night Powerball drawing created 25,371 total winners. Since the Power Play number was four, 6,339 of those Tennessee winners quadrupled their prizes!
