NASHVILLE—Six lucky Tennessee Lottery players have won $1 million or more each during just a week's time.
The latest is a Mega Millions player in Eads (Shelby County) who won $1 million on Friday night by matching five of six numbers drawn. That as-yet-unknown millionaire holds the 245th ticket sold by the Lottery worth $1 million or more since its inception in January 2004.
“What a week!” said Rebecca Hargrove, President and CEO of the Tennessee Education Lottery. “The Lottery creates winners of all kinds—from players like these to the students heading to school this month with the help of Lottery-funded awards.”
In addition to the Eads player, there were five others who won $1 million or more since Friday, August 17:
-A $2 million Powerball winner in Millington
-A $1 million Mega Millions winner in Brentwood
And three who won by entering non-winning instant game tickets into the Lottery’s Play It Again drawing program:
-A $1 million $100X the Cash winner in Louisville
-A $1 million $1,000,000 Cash Bonanza winner in Joelton
