How to Play

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.

Where to Play will help you locate the nearest Tennessee Lottery retailer. And the handy Player Checklist includes helpful reminders about purchasing a Lottery ticket.
