Scratch Off Lottery Tickets Go on Sale in Mississippi Monday
It’s the final countdown, and the climate is just right, for Mississippi retailers who will sell lottery tickets for the first time ever in our state on Monday. That’s right. Scratch off lottery tickets are set to go on sale starting Monday. Businesses across the state, including right here in South Mississippi, are gearing up to sell lottery tickets come Monday-just three days away. Scratch off lottery tickets will likely be available at a store near you. In the past, many people have traveled across state lines, to Slidell, or other Lousiana cities, to purchase lottery tickets, including scratch offs, Powerball and Megamillion tickets. Well, on Monday that all changes, at least for scratch offs. Initially, there will be four kinds of scratch off lottery tickets available, with prices ranging from $1 dollar to $5.
Megamillions and Powerball tickets will go on sale in Mississippi on January 30th of next year.
