The Tennessee Lottery is adding a feature to its CASH 3 and CASH 4 games to give players another chance to win additional cash.
Beginning Sunday, Dec. 7 through March 17, 2009, players may add “Lucky Sum” to any Cash 3 or Cash 4 play at the time of purchase. The cost matches the cost of the play ($.50 or $1). The sum of the numbers for the player’s CASH 3 or CASH 4 play will be generated and printed at the bottom of the ticket. After each CASH 3 or CASH 4 drawing, the sum of the numbers drawn is the “Lucky Sum.” If it matches the sum of the numbers the player played, then the person wins. The odds for matching some number combinations are greater than others. The greater the odds, the more you can win—up to $500 on CASH 3 and up to $5,000 on CASH 4.
Example: If a player selects the following CASH 3 numbers, 1,2,3 on a $1 play and adds Lucky Sum for an additional $1, the Lucky Sum number would be 6. If the winning numbers selected in the drawing equal the sum of 6, such as 222, the player wins!
