NASHVILLE - Jackpot fever is here, with both jackpots in the Tennessee Lottery's popular Powerball and Lotto 5 games growing to incredible new highs after last night’s drawings. The Powerball jackpot now stands at $200 million for Saturday's drawing, while Lotto 5 has a grand prize of $330,000 for Friday night's drawing.

Although last night’s drawings didn't create any jackpot wins, there were 55,323 total Tennessee winners in Powerball, including a $200,000 winning ticket purchased in Henderson. In Lotto 5, there were 1,876 wins, 60 of which were worth $188 each.

Lotto 5 drawings are broadcast Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights at 10:34 p.m. CT (11:34 p.m. ET); Powerball drawings are broadcast Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9:59 p.m. CT (10:59 p.m. ET). Drawings are broadcast 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.
