The MLC must transfer net proceeds within 20 days following the close of each month. The first $80 million goes to the state Department of Transportation for projects. Any proceeds after $80 million are added to the Education Enhancement Fund.

Lottery officials also advise players that a $30,000 winning ticket from Tuesday’s Mega Millions drawing bought at the Circle K in Ocean Springs. The ticket matched four of five white balls and the Mega Ball. The payer also added a $1 Megaplier option, boosting their $10,000 ticket to a $30,000 payday.

Tonight’s Powerball drawing is now an estimated $439 million with a cash value of $237.3 million.
