HOW TO PLAY OUR GAMES
Tennessee Lottery games are entertaining and easy to play. The Lottery offers both instant and drawing-style (listed above) games. Drawing-style, or computerized, games let you choose, or have the computer choose, a series of numbers. If the numbers drawn for that game match your numbers, you win! Instant games, or scratch-offs, come in a variety of designs and allow you to determine if you’re a winner instantly.

Pick one Set of 6 Numbers (Quick Pick may be used –see below)
- 5 numbers from the upper area
- 1 number from the lower area
A “play” is one set of 6 numbers for one draw.
Always fill out a Playslip for a Set of Numbers. Play up to 5 Sets of Numbers per Playslip by
Picking one Set of Numbers in each Box, A thru E. Mistakes may be Voided (see VOID below).
2. Play Numbers for Multi-Draws
You may Play your Set/Sets of Numbers for up to 12 consecutive Draws for Tennessee Cash or
up to 10 consecutive draws for other games (Includes the next Draw). Be sure to mark MULTIDRAW if you want more than one Draw.
3. Quick Pick (QP)
You may choose to have the computer randomly Pick any Set of Numbers by marking ‘QP’ in either the upper and/or the lower areas of the box for that Set of Numbers. If you do not choose QP you must enter your own Numbers in that Box.
Costs $1 extra per Play (A Play is one Set of 6 numbers). By choosing the MULTIPLIER option, non-jackpot winners will be paid a multiple of the regular prize amount as described below. See Prize Chart. To select this option, check the appropriate MULTIPLIER area for any of the game:
Power Ball Multiplier (Power Play):
A Power Play number of either 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 will be randomly selected for each draw. The 10 multiplier may only be selected when the advertised annuity jackpot is $150 million or less. When a ticket with Power Play wins a non-jackpot prize, the regular prize amount will be multiplied by the Power Play number drawn. See Prize Chart for exceptions.
It is not a good idea to try to correct a mistake made on a Playslip. The better option is to mark Void in that section. All other Play Areas of the Playslip are still acceptable to Play and only the Area marked Void will not be played by the terminal.The Magic Mile: Tennessee Powerball how-to and step-by-step game instructions and payouts. ]]>
