Tennessee Lottery: Results, Winning Numbers, and General Information
About the Tennessee Lottery
The Tennessee Lottery is run by the Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation, which was created in June 2003. In January 2004, the TELC sold its first lottery ticket ever, with its mission of raising funds for education in Tennessee. Since its inception, the TELC has contributed more than $4..7 Billion to benefit Tennessee schools, programs, and students.
Tennessee Lottery Tickets
Tennessee Lottery tickets can be purchased from any of the 5,000+ authorized retailer within the state of Tennessee.
Winning draw game tickets are valid for 180 days after the draw date, which means that players must claim their prizes within that time frame.
For winning instant tickets, prizes must be claimed within 90 days of the official end date of the corresponding game.
Can I buy TN Lottery tickets online?
No. Tennessee laws require that all lottery tickets be purchased in person at a participating retailer. Tennessee Lottery tickets can only be purchased with cash.
Tennessee Lottery Games and Drawing Schedule
Lotto America is the Tennessee Lottery’s biggest jackpot game. It features bi-weekly draws – every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:30 PM CT.
To play Lotto America, pick 5 numbers from 1 to 52, plus an additional Star Ball number from 1 to 10. Match all of the numbers to win the jackpot. There are nine prize tiers in total.
The ever-popular Cash4Life lottery makes a welcome appearance in the Tennessee Lottery’s lineup of games. After all, with a top prize of $1,000 everyday for life, it’s one game that’s sure to excite.
Cash4Life requires players to pick 5 numbers from 1 to 60, plus a Cash Ball number from 1 to 4. Match all numbers and take home that elusive grand prize. Cash4Life drawings are held twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays, at 8:00 PM CT.
Tennessee Cash is a bit like Lotto America’s little brother. It features a similar game type, but with a smaller number range. Pick 5 numbers from 1 to 35, plus a Cash Ball number from 1 to 5, in order to play.
Drawings are held three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, at 10:30 PM CT.
Keno To Go
In Keno To Go, players get plenty of freedom in how they play or win. You can choose to play anywhere from 1 to 10 numbers, which greatly affects your odds of winning (as well as prize amounts). You can also set your wager from as low as $1 to as high as $10. If you opt for the Bulls-Eye feature, you get more chances of winning, as well as bigger payouts.
Keno To Go draws occur every 5 minutes, Mondays to Saturdays.
In Cash 3, players pick a 3 digit number in order to play. Winning is determined by which play type you choose – whether by matching in exact order, in any order, or a combination of both types. You can also add the Lucky Sum feature to increase your chances of taking home a prize.
Cash 3 draws are held everyday at 9:28 AM, 12:28 PM, and 6:28 PM CT. On Sundays, only the evening draw takes place.
Cash 4 offers a similar set of rules to Cash 3, except that players must pick a 4 digit number in order to play. The draw schedule is also similar – everyday at 9:28 AM, 12:28 PM, and 6:28 PM CT, with the exception of Sundays which only hold the evening draw.
