JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — State Representative Alyce Clarke of Jackson bought Mississippi’s first lottery ticket yesterday morning at a convenience store in south Jackson. Mississippi was one of only six states without a lottery until lawmakers authorized one last year to raise money for road and bridge repairs. Tickets went on sale at 1200 convenience stores yesterday; the first $80 million a year from lottery revenue will go to highways and the rest will go to education.[sc name=”twitterfollow”]
