The elusive Mississippi Match 5 jackpot continues to set records and has reached an estimated $795,000 for the drawing on Saturday, Feb. 4.

Unprecedented sales and no jackpot winners have continued to push the jackpot amount higher.

Saturday’s drawing is the 24th roll for the current jackpot. The jackpot was last won on Dec. 10, 2022, for $55,000. The jackpot will grow until at least one ticket matches all five numbers.

“This is phenomenal,” said Mississippi Lottery Corporation President Jeff Hewitt. “Players have been enjoying this game so much. Seeing that excitement swell has pushed the jackpot to record amounts. Remember, though, it only takes one ticket matching all five numbers to win.”
