Mississippi Lottery players won't want to balk at this opportunity.

For sports fans, spring means the return of their favorite game — baseball. The Mississippi Lottery is jumping on that bandwagon, as they announced three new scratch-off games rolling into Mississippi Lottery retailers on April 2.

With so much variety in these new scratch-off games, the lottery says they will score home runs with all players. Check out the new instant games below!

Home Run Riches — $2 instant game

The first new ticket coming to lottery retailers on April 2 is Home Run Riches, a new $2 instant game.

For this scratch game, players need to match any of their numbers to any of the winning numbers. If they do, they win the prize shown for that number. If you happen to reveal a “2X” symbol, win double the prize shown. If you reveal a baseball bat symbol, you win all 10 prizes shown.

Players have the opportunity to win 10 times on one ticket, with 10 prize amounts available. These amounts range from $2 up to the top prize of $20,000, of which there are two top prizes to win. The overall odds on Home Run Riches is 1 in 4.94.

Bingo Mania — $3 instant game

The next new ticket coming to Mississippi Lottery retailers on April 2 is Bingo Mania, a new $3 instant game.

For this scratch game, players will scratch the CALLER'S CARD, which contains 24 Bingo numbers. Then, scratch each BINGO CARD that contains those Bingo numbers. Each ticket contains four bingo cards, and a winning pattern is either a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line; four corners; or an “X.” If any of your cards have a winning pattern, then you win the prize in the prize key for that corresponding card. If your winning pattern happens to contain a 3X symbol, then you win triple the prize for that card.

There are 19 different prize amounts available, ranging from $3 up to the top prize of $30,000, of which there are two top prizes to win. The overall odds on Bingo Mania is 1 in 4.03.

Fun 5s — $5 instant game

The last new game hitting lottery retailers on April 2 is Fun 5s, a new $5 instant game.

There are three games to play on each Fun 5s ticket, with each game being played separately:

  • Game 1 - Reveal three money symbols in any one row, column, or diagonal like tic-tac-toe, and win the prize shown. If you happen to reveal a “5” symbol in the 5X BOX, then you win five times that prize amount.
  • Game 2 - On each play line, reveal three money bag symbols, and you win the prize shown for that line. If you happen to reveal two money bags and a “5” symbol, then you win five times the prize shown for that line.
  • Game 3 - Reveal a money roll symbol in any of the six available spots and win the prize shown for that symbol. If you happen to reveal a “5” symbol in any of the six available spots, then you win five times the prize shown for that symbol.

There are 11 different prize amounts available, ranging from $5 up to the top prize of $100,000, of which there are two top prizes to win. The overall odds on Fun 5s is 1 in 4.31.
