Approaching its fifth year of sales in November 2024, the Mississippi Lottery Corporation (MLC) is jubilant to announce a remarkable milestone—it has surged past the $2 billion mark in gross sales. This achievement stands as a testament to the enduring enthusiasm and support from both players and stakeholders.

Jeff Hewitt, President of the MLC, expressed, “These four years have passed in a flurry of excitement and growth. Reaching the $2 billion mark is an incredible accomplishment, and we are excited about continuing our growth and success into Year 5.”


The significance of this achievement goes beyond mere numbers, as it has contributed substantially to the State of Mississippi. Since the inception of sales on November 25, 2019, the MLC has returned over half a billion dollars to the state. These funds have been channeled towards crucial sectors such as roads, bridges, and education.

Directly benefitting from these contributions, the Highway Fund has received a substantial boost of more than $377 million, while the Education Enhancement Fund has seen an infusion of over $142 million. The impact of these financial injections into vital state infrastructure and education cannot be overstated.

Dr. Mike McGrevey, Chairman of the MLC Board of Directors, hailed this achievement, saying, “Enthusiastic retailers, loyal players, dedicated Lottery employees, and knowledgeable vendors have all contributed to the success of the MLC. Given the achievements so far and the plans for the future, I sincerely believe the Mississippi Lottery will continue to be a winner for Mississippi.”

The MLC’s journey to this milestone has not only enriched the state but also solidified its role as a vital contributor to Mississippi’s progress. With a commitment to growth and the betterment of education, the Mississippi Lottery Corporation looks ahead to a future filled with even greater accomplishments and continued support for the state’s development.
