Close to half-million won in Saturday Lottery drawings

Rolling jackpots total more than $1 billion

Saturday, July 8 was a good night for three Mississippi Lottery players who won close to half-million dollars total in prizes.

One Mississippi Match 5 player matched all five numbers in the Saturday, July 8, drawing and won $247,470.79. The ticket was purchased from U.S. Food Mart on Highway 18 West in Raymond. The winning numbers drawn were 9-10-16-19-26.

Two Powerball® players matched four out of five white balls plus the Powerball in the Saturday drawing, yielding wins of $50,000 each. Because both players spent the extra dollar for the Power Play option – and the Power Play number drawn was 2 – their wins were doubled to $100,000 each.

One ticket was purchased from Keith’s Superstore #107 on Highway 49 in Saucier. The second winning ticket was purchased from Spring Mart #4134 on Highway 182 in Starkville. The winning numbers drawn were 7-23-24-32-43 with a Powerball of 18.

These winners have 180 days from the date of the drawings to claim their prize, which must be done at MLC headquarters in Flowood.
