Mississippi gets first multi-million winner! Drawing Date: 6/9/2020 June 11, 2020 - A Gautier woman walked away from the Mississippi Lottery Headquarters as a $2 million winner today from the June 9, 2020, Mega Millions drawing. The player chose to remain anonymous. “I picked my own numbers, and I always play Megaplier,” she said. “When we heard the Mississippi Lottery was coming to Mississippi, I said I’d be the first to win!” How did she win?!?! She correctly picked the 5 white ball numbers and paid the extra dollar for Megaplier. The Megaplier number for the June 9 drawing was 2, multiplying her otherwise $1 million prize to $2 million. She purchased her winning ticket from Jerry Lee’s Grocery in Gautier, Miss., where she regularly stops once a week to purchase her tickets. The country’s newest lottery, Mississippi began selling Mega Millions tickets at the end of January. The $2 million Mega Millions winning ticket is state’s largest lottery prize awarded to date.
