Is there a lottery in Mississippi?

No. Mississippi is among 6 US states that do not have a state-operated lottery, together with Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Nevada, and Utah.

Why Mississippi Doesn’t Have a State Lottery

Mississippi did in fact have lotteries in the past, which were used to raise funds for various state projects.

Today, however, lotteries are outlawed within Mississippi. While many have been pushing for a state-sponsored lottery, lawmakers have been reluctant to go through with it for fear of upsetting religious church groups as well as the existing casino industry within the state.

Can you buy lottery tickets in Mississippi?

Currently, no. The sale of lottery tickets within the state of Mississippi is not permitted by law.

How can people in Mississippi play lottery?

Residents of Mississippi will have to cross state borders to purchase lottery tickets. Neighboring states Arkansas, Louisiana, and Tennessee allow lottery sales, so those would be the most practical options.

Can you win the lottery if you live in Mississippi?

Yes, you can, but you’ll have to pay additional state taxes on top of any standard taxes that already apply.

Will Mississippi ever get the lottery?

If you’re looking forward to playing the lottery right from within Mississippi, then you’ll be happy to hear that this may soon be possible.

Lawmakers have recently approved an official state lottery, and a lottery board has already been appointed. Members are currently in the process of setting everything up. If all goes according to plan, residents of Mississippi may be able to play without leaving their home state by the end of 2019 or early 2020. Instant scratch-off games may be available even sooner.
