Tennessee LotteryTennessee Lottery: Tenn. Lottery to make 4 millionaires tonightRating:

The Tennessee Lottery is about to make four people millionaires.

The four $1 million prizes will be doled out Monday evening in the lottery's first Million $ Madness game.

"Players have told us for years they want this kind of game," said Rebecca Paul Hargrove, president and CEO of the lottery. And it will mean an estimated $3.2 million in proceeds for education in the state.

Lottery officials will cut off ticket sales when 800,000 are sold — a number nearly reached as the weekend began — which will leave ticket holders with a 1 in 200,000 chance to win $1 million. Tickets cost $10 apiece.

"We know for sure there will be four million-dollar winners," Hargrove said. "This doesn't happen in any other lottery game here."

There also will be two winners of $50,000 each and 100 winners of $500 each. The four winning $1 million tickets will be announced on the statewide lottery telecast at 7:28 p.m. EDT.

This was such a rip. Compare tn to ky's payouts and tell me this was fair. I can't even check the numbers because the website can't handle the traffic. So much for being prepared after all that hype. I did manage to find out I didn't get a big winning ticket from the tv news station's website. Why they couldn't list the 500 dollar winners, I don't know.
