This ALL has happened to me, same game.
Early Feb of this year I got a hunch to play TN millionaire club and hit for $100 on one ticket and $30 immediately after that. Thinking I could do it over again, I went to another store and proceded to not only spend that 130, but take out more of my own money (about another 160). I won NOTHING out of 8 tickets.
Went BACK the next morning (pay day) and bought a few more and recouped about 120 of my loss. When I cashed that at a Mapco, the clerk said "wow, you got really lucky" I said no, it cost me twice that to get there. I went strait to the bank and deposited it into my account.
And dont get me started on the Jumbo Jumbo Millionare $20 scratchers. They are worse because they started with much fewer prizes than the millionaire club.
That info is posted on the tnlottery website, under the games section. There is a 'remaining prize' section that was revealed to me by a member on this site recently and it has been extremely helpful.
Oh, and to add insult to injury a mere 2 weeks after this, I recently learned that somebody actually hit the million dollar prize in the same exact town where I blew all this money. Luckily, for my own sanity, it was not at the store where I bought all of them but it is where I play often.
Good luck going forward! Personally I have learned to really like the $2 scratchers :)
