Tennesseans win $298 million playing Powerball

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee lottery officials say Powerball players in the state have won more than $298.1 million in prizes since the game became available in the state in April 2004.

They commented Thursday as the Powerball jackpot reached $310 million for Saturday's drawing, the most since August 2007, when it was $314 million.

Rebecca Hargrove, president and CEO of the Tennessee lottery, said a recently redesigned Powerball game has boosted jackpots and improved odds of winning.

It costs $2 to play.
