The Mississippi Match 5 lottery is expanding to become a daily game, joining the Cash 3, Cash 4, and Cash Pop evening drawings.
“The popularity of Match 5 has skyrocketed since the record $905,000 jackpot was hit in February,” Mississippi Lottery President Jeff Hewitt said. “Mississippi Match 5’s great odds and ease of play consistently make it a player favorite. We’re simply responding to what players want – more Mississippi Match 5.”
Players who use the multi-draw option with up to 24 draws currently available will note a decrease of one advance multi-draw every drawing beginning with the drawing on July 18 when only 23 multi-draws will be available.
Beginning September 10, players will be able to purchase up to 21 multi-draw advance drawings, including the current drawing.
The Mississippi Lottery Corporation has released that there will be no other changes in the way the game plays.
Players choose 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, but players can select the Multiplier feature for an additional dollar, which multiplies non-jackpot winning prizes by 2, 3, 4, or 5 times.
Prizes may be won by matching as few as two numbers or all the numbers drawn. The prizes range in value from a free ticket to the jackpot.
Ticketholders can find drawing results just after 10 p.m.
