- Scratch off lottery tickets are like candy that melts your bank account. If you're not careful with your scratch off lottery tickets budget, you'll develop a habit you cannot afford. And I've seen people standing beside scratch off machines, putting in all their money and scratching frantically, looking for a jackpot prize.
Mar 04, 2020 Scratch-off lotto tickets are sold with varying odds, styles, and designs, but the easiest way to compare them is by price. Typically, scratch-off tickets cost between $1 and $20 a piece, depending on the game and the area in which you live. I’m so glad you found your way to our little resting stop full of simple living ideas. Here you will find frugal living tips, DIY tutorials, from-scratch recipes, and so much more.
Jimmy Keene of Pelahatchie was on his way to work when he stopped at the U.S. 51 Chevron in Ridgeland, according to the Mississippi Lottery Corp.
Keene said he purchased a $5 ticket for the $100,000 Jackpot scratch-off game. He scratched off the ticket and couldn't believe he won.
When he got to work, he asked his boss to make sure he was seeing the amount correctly. His boss told him to immediately return to the store. The store associate told him to head to the lottery office.
Jimmy then called wife Becky to tell her the news.
“’What’s the matter with you?’ I asked him, because he was breathless,” Becky said laughing. “He told me he won $100,000, and I told him to quit lying to me!”
The two screamed and embraced after receiving their check, according to the lottery officials.
Also, there was a $20,000 winner.
A Greenwood woman stopped at Double Quick #21 in Greenwood over the weekend to grab an energy drink on her way to work. While there, she also purchased the Triple 7s scratch-off game and won $20,000. She chose to remain anonymous.
Carolyn Cleveland of Hickory stopped at Cefco #506 in Newton. She purchased the Happy Holidays, Y’all scratch-off game and won $2,000.
Mississippi's lottery kicked off Nov. 25 with scratch-off lottery tickets. Power Ball and Mega Millions ticket sales will begin Jan. 30.

Some 1,200 approved retailers, located in 80 of 82 counties, were allowed to begin selling scratch-off tickets.
For the next decade, up to $80 million a year from lottery proceeds will help fund state roads and bridges or to match federal infrastructure money. Any revenue above $80 million would go to public education, the Education Enhancement Fund.
After decades of debate, lawmakers in a summer special session last year approved a state lottery. It's expected to net the state about $40 million the first year, then $80 million to $100 million a year thereafter.
Retailers keep 6 percent of lottery ticket sales.
First week of lottery: $8.9M in sales.
First day lottery ticket sales: More than $2.5M in first 24 hours.
