The Mississippi Lottery has announced the exciting changes after listening to feedback from players, who have requested multiple drawings a day.
Going forward, Cash 3 and Cash 4 will take place at 2:30pm every day in addition to the current nightly drawings at 9:30pm. The games will otherwise remain unchanged, apart from the launch of Fireball.
How Does Fireball Work?
Fireball is an add-on feature that increases your chances of winning a prize in either Cash 3 or Cash 4. It doubles the price of a play if you want to take part, so a $1 wager would cost $2 if you added Fireball, and a $0.50 play would become $1.
You don’t have to pick any extra numbers with Fireball. Instead, there is a separate draw and one Fireball number is randomly selected between 0 and 9.
If you’ve added Fireball, you can replace any of the drawn numbers with the Fireball. For example, if you’ve played Cash 3 and picked the numbers 123, but the winning numbers are 127, you could still win. If the Fireball was 3, you could replace the 7 in the winning line with a 3 and it would exactly match your numbers.
You can even win multiple times in the same play, by winning with the base game and with Fireball.
Cash 3 was launched in September 2020, while Cash 4 followed in January of this year. The changes are designed to keep the games fresh and fun, and lottery officials are confident that players will enjoy the update.
