NASHVILLE - The Powerball and Lotto 5 jackpots continue to climb for the weekend drawings of these two popular games. Powerball grows to an estimated $41 million for its next drawing on Saturday, March 31. Although no player matched all six numbers correctly in last night’s drawing, there were 23,866 winners who purchased tickets from retailers in the state of Tennessee. By selecting the Power Play option, 5,990 players doubled their winnings.

The Lotto 5 Jackpot reaches $275,000 as it rolls over to the next drawing on Friday, March 30. Wednesday night’s drawing produced 1,888 winners, including 39 players who each won $257 and 1,849 players who each won $8.

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.
