The first scratch-off games in Mississippi launched in on November 25th, with eight different lottery games now available from retailers in Mississippi for the first time ever. There was nearly $9million worth of tickets sold in the first two weeks, of which $3.8million was awarded in prizes and $2million going into the state budget to help pay for road and bridge improvements. That’s $2million that the state would not have had this time last year, and is only going to rise with the addition of draw games such as Powerball and Mega Millions.
