NASHVILLE - A Powerball player in Murfreesboro, who purchased the Power Play option, won $2 million in Saturday night’s drawing when the multiplier chosen was ten. The lucky player becomes the first Tennessee winner of $2 million during Powerball’s “10 Times” promotion. In addition, three other players will turn their $10,000 wins to $100,000 wins thanks to the same promotion!

Here’s how it works. For the month of April, Powerball is running their “10 Times” promotion. Before every Powerball drawing, a Power Play wheel is spun to select a multiplier between two and five. During the promotion, one of the four 5s on the wheel is replaced with a 10. If the ten is selected, the non-jackpot prizes won for that drawing will be multiplied “10 Times” for players with the Power Play option.

No additional details are available until the player claims the prize. The Powerball jackpot is estimated at $36 million for the next drawing on Wednesday, April 18.

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.

The Tennessee Lottery began selling its first tickets on January 20, 2004. As of December 31, 2006, the Lottery has raised more than $763 million to fund specific education programs, including college scholarships, pre-kindergarten and after-school programs.
