NASHVILLE - The Powerball jackpot is on the rise as an estimated $165 million rolls for the next drawing on Wednesday, March 14. Although no player matched all six numbers correctly in last night’s drawing, there were over 45,000 winners who purchased tickets from retailers in the state of Tennessee. By selecting the Power Play option, nearly 10,000 of those winners multiplied their winnings by five.

In addition, the Lotto 5 Jackpot grows to $290,000 for its next drawing on Monday, March 12. Friday night’s drawing produced a total of 2,264 winners, including 62 players who each won $199 and 2,202 players who each won $9.

And don’t miss out on Million $ Madness, your best chance yet to win $1 million! Tickets are on sale now for a limited time at all Lottery retailers.
