One Mississippi resident matched all five numbers from Tuesday’s Mississippi Match 5 drawing after 25 consecutive rolls, ending the $905,168 record-breaking jackpot run.
The winning ticket, which was purchased from Sprint Mart #4136 in West Point, matched the drawn numbers of 1-2-8-31-33.
“This is an outstanding win for one lucky Mississippi Lottery player,” said Mississippi Lottery Corporation President Jeff Hewitt. “Mississippi Match 5 is a player favorite, and we can’t wait to greet the winner of this record-setting jackpot.”
At this time, the jackpot — which was risen three times since the previous drawing on Saturday — is the highest grand prize since the lottery game was launched in April 2021.
Before the current jackpot run, the previous record hit in July 2021 totaled $665,000. Since its launch, Mississippi Match 5 has had five jackpots of more than $500,000. Each time there’s a jackpot winner, the game resets to a $50,000 jackpot.
It’s been nearly two months since a player matched all five numbers, with the last jackpot of $55,000 being hit on December 10.
Now, the jackpot will reset to an estimated $50,000 for Thursday night’s drawing.
