Record Match 5 jackpot reaches $900,000*

Mississippi Match 5 continues to grow 

While the $754.6 million Powerball jackpot was hit with a ticket purchased in Washington state, Mississippi’s Match 5 in-state game continues to soar into uncharted waters. Lottery officials increased the estimated jackpot for the drawing tonight, Feb. 7, from $880,000 to $900,000.

“We have never seen anything like this for our in-state game,” said Mississippi Lottery President Jeff Hewitt. “Player enthusiasm over this jackpot is driving up sales, permitting us to increase the jackpot – again. Remember, though, play responsibly.”

The drawing tonight will be the 25th roll in the current jackpot run. The jackpot was last hit on Dec. 10, 2022, and will continue to grow until a player matches all five numbers from a field from one to 35.
