A lucky Mississippi scratch-off lottery player cashed in a winning ticket for $200,000 Monday.

Officials with the Mississippi Lottery report that a Gulf Coast player claimed the last top prize of $200,000 on a Mega Ca$h scratch-off game.

Additionally, a lucky Mississippi Match 5 player won the $85,000 jackpot for the July 15 drawing.
