New Mississippi Lottery draw-style game starts

Sales begin today for Mississippi Match-5 an in-state lottery game, with drawings three nights each week and a starting jackpot of $50,000*. The inaugural Mississippi Match 5 drawing will be tomorrow.  

Winning numbers will be drawn Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday; and if no one matches all five numbers in one night’s drawing, the jackpot grows. 

Players choose five numbers (from 1-35) or opt for the quick-pick option, which permits the terminal to choose the numbers. Each play costs two dollars. For an additional one dollar per play, players can select the Multiplier feature to increase non-jackpot winning prizes by 2, 3, 4 or 5 times. Prizes may be won by matching some or all of the numbers drawn and range in value from a free ticket to the jackpot.

Drawing results will be broadcast just after 10 p.m. CST on Mississippi Lottery partner TV stations, the MLC website, www.mslotteryhome.com, and the Most Recent Drawing Results Hotline at 601-487-1396. Lottery partner stations can be found on the website.
