NASHVILLE - The jackpot for Tennessee's popular Powerball game has jumped to an estimated $153 million for Saturday night's drawing. Although there wasn't a jackpot winner in the game last night, the drawing created 43,353 wins in Tennessee alone, including nearly 10,000 Power Play winners who quintupled their prize!

In other new, last night's Lotto 5 drawing created 1,267 winners, 30 of whom won $244 each for matching four of the five numbers drawn.
