Powerball, Mega Millions Ticket Sales Starting Jan. 30

Mark your calendars, Mississippians, for on Jan. 30. Powerball and Mega Millions will both be available for purchase in Mississippi.

“Mississippians will no longer have to cross into neighboring states to participate in these drawing-style games,” said Tom Shaheen, president of the Mississippi Lottery Corporation. “They will soon have the opportunity for a chance to play big jackpot games four times per week, as well as many secondary prizes.”

Accepted into the Multi-State Lottery Association in August, the MLC will be the newest lottery member to sell Powerball and Mega Millions once sales commence Jan. 30. Drawings for both games occur twice per week and have had jackpots reaching more than $1 billion. Powerball drawings occur on Wednesdays and Saturdays, while Mega Millions drawings take place on Tuesdays and Fridays.

The first $80 million of net lottery annual proceeds will go toward infrastructure needs around the state. After that 10-year period, lottery proceeds collection up to $80 million will go into the state’s general fund. Any net proceeds over $80 million will be sent to the Education Enhancement Fund, which helps fund pre-K and the classroom supply fund.

The Multi-State Lottery Association is a non-profit, government benefit, voluntary association that is entirely owned and operated by its member lotteries. Each MUSL member lottery offers one or more multi-jurisdictional lottery games administered with the assistance of MUSL. All profits are retained by the individual lotteries and are used to fund projects or purposes approved by their authorizing legislatures.
