JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A new lottery game began Wednesday and will carry an initial jackpot of $50,000.

On Wednesday, the Mississippi Lottery Corporation announced that it had begun a “Match-5” draw game.

Winning numbers will be drawn every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. If no one matches all five numbers in a night’s drawing, the jackpot grows.

The first drawing is slated for April 29.

The game works like this: players will be able to choose five numbers from one to 35 or allow the computer terminal to choose for them. Winners will be able to purchase a multiplier feature, which would increase non-jackpot winnings by as much as five times.

Drawings will be held just after 10 p.m. and will be broadcast on television and on mslotteryhome.com.
