Mississippi Lottery Tickets Coming by Year’s End

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi Lottery tickets could be available before the end of this year. Gerard Gibert says the lottery board will soon begin choosing banking services and hiring a president to run the day-to-day business of the lottery; he also hopes Mississippi will be accepted for multistate big-dollar games like Powerball by early 2020. Mississippi lawmakers met in special session last August and created the lottery to generate money for transportation. Over 400 local bridges were closed with structural problems at the time of the special session and the state transportation department has long claimed it needs hundreds of millions more dollars.
