$378,129 WILD MONEY JACKPOT TICKET FINALLY CLAIMED
2ND WIN OVER $300,000 FOR TWO FRIENDS
Two friends, one from North Providence and one from Cranston, have finally claimed the $378,129 Wild Money jackpot from the August 22 drawing, the third highest jackpot ever. They take turns buying 10 Quick Picks each week. Both mentioned that they would pay bills and put the rest in savings.
This isn't the first time the lucky pals have won over $300,000. In March 2011, they split $328,000 on the Cash Spectacular Instant Ticket. Surprisingly, they purchased both winning tickets at Phred's Drug, 1300 Oaklawn Ave., Cranston.
The Wild Money drawings take place three times a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, live on WPRI at 7:29pm.
Tonight's estimated Wild Money jackpot is $35,000.
