NASHVILLE—A Clarksville dad says an incredible $3 million prize won playing the Tennessee Lottery’s “Mighty Jumbo Bucks” instant game “couldn’t have come at a better time.” With two young children and a third child on the way, it’s easy to see why.

“It feels unreal,” said Shane Hexamer, who claimed his prize late afternoon on Friday, July 21. “I’m just ready to wake up.” Shane purchased the lucky ticket earlier that day at Timesavers in Portland.

This is the 215th winning ticket of $1 million or more sold by the Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation since it began on January 20, 2004.
