A LOTTO PLUS ticket purchased in Chattanooga matched all six numbers for the Jan. 20 LOTTO PLUS drawing, which means the ticket wins the jackpot of $11.7 million! No additional information is available until the player claims the prize. The jackpot for Friday’s LOTTO PLUS drawing is $1 million.
LOTTO PLUS is Tennessee’s own lotto-style game introduced in March 2008. To play LOTTO PLUS, just select any six numbers from 1 to 44, or choose Quick Pick to let a computer randomly pick any or all of the numbers. Each play is $1. If 3, 4, 5, or 6 of those numbers are drawn in any order, the player wins. If no ticket matches all six numbers drawn, the jackpot increases a minimum of $100,000 for the next drawing. As with Powerball and Pick 5, if more than one ticket matches all of the numbers drawn, the jackpot will be split among the ticket holders.
Lotto Plus also has a Plus Feature, which will multiply any non-jackpot winnings by 2 to 5 times for an extra dollar per play. Drawings are held every Tuesday and Friday at 10 p.m. CT/11 p.m. ET. Please note that FreePlay is unavailable during the LOTTO PLUS draw break on Tuesdays and Fridays from 8:59 p.m. CT until 10 p.m. CT
