A Mississippi Match 5 player hit a nearly $100,000 jackpot after matching all five numbers during Tuesday night’s drawing.
The approximately $98,800 ticket, which contained the winning numbers 6-11-20-25-26, was purchased at the Bridges Quickie #1 in Florence.
The jackpot for the Thursday, September 7 drawing has now reset to $50,000.
Beginning Sunday, September 10, Mississippi Match 5 will be moving to daily drawings, joining the Cash 3, Cash 4, and Cash Pop evening drawings. Lottery officials have released that there will be no other changes in the way the game plays.
Players select five numbers from a field of 35 or opt for the quick-pick option, which permits the terminal to choose the numbers. Each play costs $2. For an additional dollar per play, players can select the multiplier feature, which multiplies non-jackpot winning prizes up to five times.
Prizes may be won by matching as few as two numbers or all the numbers drawn, and prizes range in value from a free ticket to the jackpot.
As for the other lottery games, the jackpot for Wednesday’s Powerball drawing has risen to $461 million with an estimated cash value of $223.5 million. The jackpot for Friday’s Mega Millions drawing is now at $122 million with a cash value of $58.7 million.
