On Monday, Nov. 2, the Tennessee EducationLottery Board of Directors today unanimously voted to offer a secondmega-jackpot game in Tennessee, which is expected to bring anadditional $10 to $15 million annually to education programs in thestate.
“Bringing Mega Millions into our portfolio of games is a win forboth players and education,” said Rebecca Hargrove, President and CEOof the Tennessee Lottery. “It’s clear that large jackpots generateexcitement in Tennessee. Adding Mega Millions will mean more sales andadditional dollars for the education programs we fund.”
The decision to allow states the option of offering both Powerballand Mega Millions has been prohibited until a recent agreement wasreached in a joint meeting of all U.S. lottery jurisdictions. Althoughadditional details must be finalized, Tennessee Lottery fans can expectto begin playing Mega Millions in early 2010.

How are you going to win if you don't play?

    I do not play Powerball or MegaMillions but I am glad for the players here in Tennessee that want to be able to play both.  Now they have that option.

      Tennessee finally does something smart in the lottery.

      Now if they would just make a deal with Virginia to sell their tickets in Tennessee I wouldn't have to drive so far to get away from the computers to play the other games too.

          Sorry for starting a new thread about an old topic.  I was unaware it had been started...  Anywho, it looks like Arkansas will also join Mega Millions soon.  According to their website.

          How are you going to win if you don't play?
