    LOTTO 5 is Tennessee’s own computerized game with a jackpot that grows until the jackpot is won. Prize amounts for LOTTO 5 are pari-mutuel, which means prizes are based on sales and all winners share an equal portion of the winnings in each prize category. Just select any five numbers from 1 to 39. If 3, 4 or 5 of those numbers are drawn in any order—you win! LOTTO 5 drawings are held Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10:34 p.m. Central Time.

    That's exactly what it say's! Too bad, seemed like an interesting pick 5 game to track.

      You're right!  I didn't know that TN Lotto 5 was computerized!   Angry

      Here's the link and info (emphasis added):

      I guess the TN Lottery will be losing it's A+ rating on the Lottery Post State Lottery Report Card

      Dang, I don't play computerized games, but I just bought a fair number of TN Lotto 5 multi-draw tickets on my way through Tennessee last night.

      Oh well, the TN Lottery won't be getting any more of my money, except for maybe a little Power Ball (and I don't play much of that).  Thank God for Georgia!

          They say on their web site that it's computerized, so it must be computerized.   Do you know for sure that Lotto 5 was actually a ball drawn game at one time?  Before I started playing in Tennesse, I looked them up on the LP State Lottery Report Card and they were listed as all ball drawn.  I never had a reason to search the TN Lottery web site to confirm it.

          If they switched from ball drawn to computerized, you can thank that over-paid Tennessee Lottery Director of yours for wrecking your game.   Chair

          I won't be playing TN Lotto 5 any more.  My money will be going to Georgia - unless they pull a similar stunt.

                I saw the drawing tonight.  The computerized game means it isn't an instant ticket lol.  You have to purchase the game on the computer terminal.  The drawings are BALL!  Don't freak out guys.  The drawings are balls still.  :)

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

                  Computerized games are also known as "ONLINE" games.

                      I saw it at 10:34.  Normal Time.  I see mine on a ABC station.  You have an NBC station.  I think they may be getting ready to switch stations or they are tired of showing drawings lol.  (Darn that monday night football though)  BTW it is up to $230,000.  Lets go get um guys.  :)

                          I agree lottomike we should watch the TN lottery.  I'm all for honesty when it comes to lottery.  The only thing that really stinks is the instant ticket top prizes.  I've heard they know where they go.  I really don't understand that.  Someone is going to win it.  Throw it out there and where ever the winner lands the ticket so be it. 

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

                            i agree with you they should throw the scratch offs out there and wherever the winner is thats where it is should be.

                              Whew! I guess I don't need that second shot of whiskey afterall!  Big Grin

                              Having signed the petition to eliminate computerized drawings, I guess I go up in smoke whenever I see the word computerized.  You're right about computerized meaning you have to purchase the ticket on a computer terminal (on line), but whenever I see it in a discussion about a lottery game, I automatically go into eliminate computerized drawings mode!

                              One thing is curious though - when you go to the TN Lottery web site's main page, both the Cash 3 and Cash 4 Results boxes have a   VIEW DRAWING   button that redirects you to a video of those drawings, but the Lotto 5 Results box has no view drawing button.

                              Thanks for setting the record straight!
