Tennessee LotteryTennessee Lottery: New Tennessee lottery game debuts tonightRating:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The latest game from the Tennessee Lottery begins tonight, with the first drawing of Tennessee Cash.

In the game, players select any five numbers from a field of 1 to 35, and one Cash Ball number from a field of 1 to 5.  Players can also choose a Quick Pick, which has the computer assign random numbers to the ticket.

Players win if they match any of 8 winning combinations.

Tennessee Cash replaces the retired Pick 5 game, which saw its last drawing on Oct. 1.

Tickets cost $1 per play.

Drawings are every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at approximately 10:30 p.m.

The starting jackpot for the Mon., Oct. 4, 2010 drawing is $200,000.

I  looked at Tennessee website and they didn't have a break down of the odds for each level so I calculated my own.

 combination size             5
 basic pool size              35
 (B) Bonus pool size          5
 smallest match no (B) number 2
 largest match with bonus     5
 smallest match with bonus    2
 tickets or chances per draw  1
 possible combos of 5/35 + 1/5 numbers = 1623160
  MATCH   ODDS               WINNING COMBOS   
  5/5+B  1 : 1623160          1
  5/5+0  1 : 405790           4
  4/5+B  1 : 10821            150
  4/5+0  1 : 2705             600
  3/5+B  1 : 373              4350
  3/5+0  1 : 93               17400
  2/5+B  1 : 40               40600
  2/5+0  1 : 10               162400
 ________________________________________________
 overall odds are 1 : 7.1               

I hope it's right, I couldn't figure what was meant by the 8 winning combinations.  I'll recheck their website tonight after the drawing.

 * you don't need to buy every combination, just the winning ones *

    looks like you got the odds right on the button

    im wondering about the 8 comment, maybe they draw 8 sets of numbers?

     

    from their site

    Playing TENNESSEE CASH is easy! Just select any five numbers from 1 to 35 and one CASH BALL number from 1 to 5, or choose Quick Pick (QP) and let the computer randomly pick any or all of your numbers. If you match any of the 8 winning combinations - you win!

    " Still swinging, still missing "
    2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = -1257 ; 2018 = - 1380 =  TOT =  - 6233

    keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 =-427; 2018= -223   TOT = -3968

      I think 8 winning combinations means there are 8 prize levels, including the Free Play for a 2of5 match.

        Thanks.  I followed your link and found that chart but earlier when I was on their website I couldn't find it.

          I picked up a few tickets. Picking one of the five will get me but at least there's 4 fewer wb's.

          Will they always start the jackpot at 200k?

            It looks like the Jackpot will start at $200,000 and will roll because tonight's drawing is for $225,000.

                        I actually bought a couple tickets cuz I heard a rumor that they're actually gonna let somebody win on this new game.

                        And then they're gonna change the matrix to ensure that that never happens again.

                            That jackpot continues to grow.

                            This game is harder to play -- picking the right number out of the 5 can be tough.

                            I guess no one has won anything over $1xx bucks yet. I want to see what the 2nd highest amount paid out is. And I hope it's to me! :)
