$5,642,143 PowerBallŪ Sales Generated from Jackpot Run
$246,000 Wild Money Jackpot Drawing Tonight

August 8, 2013

$5,642,143 PowerBall® Sales Generated from Jackpot Run
$246,000 Wild Money Jackpot Drawing Tonight

Last night's $448 million PowerBall® jackpot  drawing generated $1,424,575 in sales in Rhode Island.  The entire jackpot run, since June 22, generated $5,642,143 in sales and $451,371 in Retailer commissions. The sales, less prizes, commissions and operating expenses are transferred to the state's General Fund for education, transportation, human services, general government, public safety and natural resources.

The PowerBall® jackpot may have been hit with two tickets sold in New Jersey and one in Minnesota, but Rhode Island's own in-state progressive jackpot game, Wild Money, has a $246,000 drawing tonight.  The last time Wild Money's jackpot reached above $200,000 was in August 2011.

In addition to the Wild Money jackpot, there are five prize levels ranging from $5 to $1,500. Tickets are $1 and the odds of winning the Wild Money jackpot are 1 in 325,000.

About Wild Money
Wild Money drawings are shown live on WPRI at 7:29 p.m. every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights. Tickets can be purchased up to five minutes prior to drawing and resume approximately five minutes following the drawing. Get more information here Wild Money.
