CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) Tennessee Lottery officials say sales for Mega Millions jumped 300 percent over last week, which also set a record in Tennessee.

By the time the drawing happened Tuesday night, Lotto officials expected to tally two million dollars in sales in just one day.

     Rebecca Hargrove of the Tennessee Lottery said, "It's been an exciting week for us and when we have big jackpots what that means is we sell more tickets and the more tickets we sell the more dollars we raise for education.  We are soon to cross the two billion dollar mark for dollars that we have raised for the education programs that we fund."
