About the Mississippi Lottery

Mississippi Scenery

On August 28, 2018, the Mississippi Senate voted in favor of creating a bill to finally legalize lotteries. Just 24 hours earlier, the Senate had voted against such a bill.

However, lawmakers realized that the amount of lottery cash that's being plowed into neighboring states like Arkansas, Louisiana, and Tennessee where it's legal to play the lottery was enormous. In fact, millions of dollars go towards lottery tickets, and that is money that could be spent by residents in their own state.

What's more, proceeds will go toward the Mississippi infrastructure and educational systems:

  • net proceeds up to $80 million will go to the State Highway Fund until June 30, 2028
  • proceeds over the $80 million mark will be directed towards the Educational Enhancement Fund

The lottery money spent by Mississippi residents on Mega Millions and Powerball alone could be used for public services and education in the state.

The Lottery launched on December 1, 2019, and included just scratch-off tickets to start with. The sale for multi-state lottery games like Powerball and Mega Millions started on January 30, 2020.
