NASHVILLE - Weekend news from the Tennessee Lottery includes thousands of winners in Lotto 5 and Powerball, and jackpots for both games that are on the rise!

Saturday night's Powerball drawing created 36,217 winners and a jackpot of $93 million for Wednesday night's draw. Two tickets purchased in Tennessee from that drawing matched four white ball numbers and the Powerball, which is a $10,000 prize ... however, those tickets also used the Power Play option, which transformed the prizes into $50,000 each!

Friday night's Lotto 5 drawing produced 1,740 winners and a jackpot of $90,000 for Monday night.

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

Lotto 5 drawings are held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights at 10:34 p.m. CT (11:34 p.m. ET); Powerball drawings are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9:59 p.m. CT (10:59 p.m. ET). Drawings are held every night at 6:28 p.m. CT (7:28 p.m. ET) and at midday at 12:28 p.m. CT (1:28 p.m. ET) Monday through Saturday for the Tennessee Lottery’s other two online games, CASH 3 and CASH 4.
