Feeling lucky? Powerball, Mega Millions tickets go on sale in MS next week

Mississippi Lottery scratch-off tickets sales began today. A celebration was held at the RaceWay on Highway 18 in south Jackson. Mississippi Clarion Ledger

Powerball and Mega Millions ticket sales will begin in Mississippi Jan. 30.

Sales of scratch-off lottery tickets in the state began in November and have been brisk. The same is expected of Powerball and Mega Millions ticket sales since Mississippians will no longer have to cross state lines to play.

Wilma Butler, 70, of Jackson, is among those ready to get in on the action.

“Although it is a game of chance, it is still exciting to play and I like to play using numbers from people that I care about, like my loved one’s birthdays and anniversaries,” Butler said.

“However, I am also playing to help my state build its infrastructure. If it is something that I agree with, it is something that I will play for.”

For the next decade, up to $80 million a year from lottery proceeds will help fund state roads and bridges or to match federal infrastructure money. Any revenue above $80 million would go to public education through the Education Enhancement Fund.

LaDarion Ammons, 28, is the chief marketing officer at the Chuk Stop Food Mart, located at 3165 Robinson St. in Jackson. Ammons said he feels tickets sales for the Mega Million and the Powerball are beneficial for the state.

“It’s been an exciting time to be a retailer for the Mississippi lottery as customers have been excited and more amped up about the Powerball and Mega Millions in the coming week,” Ammons said.

“We thank Rep. Alyce Clarke, a frequent customer, for her years of working to bring a lottery to Mississippi.”

Some 1,200 approved retailers, located in 80 of the 82 counties, sell scratch-off tickets and will be selling Powerball and Mega Millions tickets.

Retailers include traditional convenience stores, convenience stores with gas, grocery stores, tobacco stores, casinos and even barber shops.

With Powerball and Mega Millions ticket sales starting Jan. 30, here's what you need to know about the two games and where to buy tickets.
