“Over the last month, we have received a large number of calls from retailer operators around the state who are enthusiastic about coming on board to sell lottery tickets,” said Tom Shaheen, president of the MLC. “As the number of applications come in, our team will be working in overdrive to receive, process and validate the information in anticipation of our December 1 launch date for scratch-offs.
“The prospective retailers are not only coming on board to sell lottery tickets, but they are also investing in the opportunity to drive more traffic to their store, increase sales for other store merchandise, receive support from a dedicated Lottery Sales Representative and ultimately assist Mississippi in raising money to help fund infrastructure and educational needs.”
Tickets will be sold primarily in convenience stores, gas stations, supermarkets, grocery stores, tobacco/beer stores, as well as a variety of other types of retail businesses. Licensed casinos are also applicable.
