NASHVILLE - Powerball and Lotto 5 jackpots continue to roll through the holidays, merrily growing to $75 million and $515,000, respectively.

As the jackpots continue to grow, more than 37,000 Tennessee players won prizes after the weekend drawings. Friday night's Lotto 5 drawing produced 2,364 winners of second and third prizes, while the Saturday night Powerball drawing created 34,963 total winners. Since the Power Play number was five, 8,810 of those Tennessee winners quintupled their prizes!

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.
