You win some, you lose some, but it looks like the Mississippi Lottery is a sure bet. Scratch-offs have only been available for purchase in Mississippi for just over 24 hours.
According to Governor Phil Bryant, via a tweet yesterday, just before 6 p.m. the state had reeled in more than half a million dollars to fund road repairs throughout Mississippi just from proceeds the first 12 hours.
The first $80 million will go towards infrastructure and road maintenance. Anything over that will go to education.
