How does Mississippi Match 5 work?

In Mississippi, Match 5 is a daily draw game. Things start drawing at 9:30 p.m. CT. Pick five numbers from 1 to 35 to play. You can also pick “Quick Pick,” which lets the computer pick the numbers for you. The Multiplier can also be added so that players have a chance to win even more.

The Multiplier is a number between 2 and 5 that was picked at random. This number is added to any gifts you win that aren’t the jackpot. The Multiplier adds an extra $1 to each play and draw.

The first prize in Mississippi Match 5 is $50,000. No one gets the jackpot if none of the five numbers are matched. The jackpot moves to the next prize pool and grows until someone wins.

Match 5 has four types of prizes. If a player matches at least two numbers, they win a free Quick Pick ticket.

What you need to do to get your MS prize

If you win this Match 5 jackpot, you have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim your prize, according to the Mississippi Lottery Corporation. If you want to collect a prize, the Mississippi Lottery Corporation will only take the original ticket.

Any Mississippi Lottery Corporation store is where you can claim prizes worth less than $600. Anyone who wins a prize worth $600 to $99,999 must claim it in person or by mail at the Mississippi Lottery Headquarters. If you mail in your winning ticket, remember that the postmark date on the envelope doesn’t mean that the 180-day period has passed. The player also takes on the risk of sending tickets.

You need to show proof of who you are, a Mississippi Lottery Winner Claim form, and the original ticket for wins worth $600 or more. Name, signature, picture, age, and Social Security number must all be checked on the right IDs.

For those sending their winning ticket by mail, remember to sign the back of the ticket and include all the necessary paperwork. The address for sending the ticket is P.O. Box 321462, Flowood, MS 39232. The Mississippi Lottery says they are not responsible for mail that gets lost or sent to the wrong place.

Why the lottery is good for Mississippi

The Mississippi State Legislature passed the Alyce G. Clarke Mississippi Lottery Law in 2018. This law set up the Mississippi Lottery Corporation.

It was decided that the Mississippi Lottery would help the state’s schools and aging facilities. Net money from the Alyce G. Clarke Mississippi Lottery Law up to $80 million will be added to the State Highway Fund until June 30, 2028. This fund helps the state of Mississippi fix up, renovate, and take care of its roads and bridges.

Any extra money made by the Alyce G. Clarke Mississippi Lottery Law over $80 million in a fiscal year will be put into the Education Enhancement Fund. The net earnings will still be put into the Lottery earnings Fund after July 1, 2028. Then, all of them but the ones over $80 million will be sent to the State General Fund. The Education Enhancement Fund will continue to get this money.
