JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — The new Mississippi Lottery will start offering multistate games on Jan. 30.
The state's lottery corporation on Tuesday announced the date that Powerball and Mega Millions will be available in Mississippi.
Mississippi has been one of six states without a lottery, but lawmakers met in 2018 and authorized the games of chance. The first $80 million a year will go to highways, and revenue after that will go to education.
Powerball and Mega Millions are overseen by the Multi-State Lottery Association.
