JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV)–The wait for the Mississippi Lottery is winding down, but preparations for retailers who want to sell tickets are ramping up.

Twelve-hundred have cleared the approval process. On November 25th, scratch-off tickets will be sold.
On January 30, Mega Millions and Powerball begins.
