Mississippi Match 5 Jackpot Increases to $97,000
JACKSON, MISS. – Close to 500 Cash 4 players totaled $855,300 in combinedwinnings from the Wednesday, Feb. 15, evening drawing with the winning combination of 3-3-3-3 and a Fireball of 3.
“Today, is going to be a very busy day at Lottery headquarters,” said Mississippi Lottery President Jeff Hewitt. “Players are lined up this morning waiting for us to open. When quads or trips hit, we can expect a lot of excitement! Last night’s drawing results led to close to $1 million in payouts.”
“Quads” – four like numbers drawn – and “trips” – three like numbers drawn – are popular number choices for Cash 4 and Cash 3 players. When those numbers are randomly drawn, the payouts are big.
Since the launch of Cash 4 in January 2022, quads have hit five times. Trips have hit 11 times for Cash 3, which launched in September 2020.
