[scene opens inside of a college library, as a young female librarian (long brown hair, glasses on a chain, green sweater) is sitting at the front desk while students are reading nearby, when a male African American professor bursts in and begins yelling]
PROFESSOR: Hey! Listen up, everybody! This is awesome! I just bought a Powerball ticket from the Tennessee lottery, whoo!
[the librarian then jumps over her desk and starts yelling as well]
LIBRARIAN: Do you realize this means you're helping fund scholarships and grants for more than eighty eight thousand students this year?
[they both high five]
[cut to two female students, who put a finger to their lips and shush the two adults]
LIBRARIAN: Yeah ...
[they both calm down, then cut to a male student sitting nearby]
STUDENT: This is me, studying in a library ...
LIBRARIAN: My bad ...
[the professor pauses, then puts on his glasses]
PROFESSOR: No ... my bad.
The Tennessee Lottery is run by the Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation (TELC), which was created on June 11, 2003 by the Tennessee General Assembly through the Tennessee Education Lottery Implementation Law.
The TELC is responsible for the operation of a lottery, and is deemed to be acting in all respects for the benefit of the people of Tennessee. It is a member of the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL); it participates in the Mega Millions and Powerball games.
The TELC sold its first ticket on January 20, 2004. On July 28, 2007, Tennessee switched from ball drawings to those using a random number generator (RNG). However, Powerball (which moved its drawings from MUSL's Iowa headquarters to Florida in 2009) continues to be ball-drawn; likewise, Mega Millions is ball-drawn in Atlanta, with the Megaplier RNG selection conducted in Texas, as California does not have the Megaplier option.
Tennessee also has a third, smaller jackpot game, Tennessee Cash, which replaced Pick 5 in October 2010.
Persons must be at least 18 years of age to purchase or redeem TELC tickets.
