Rhode Island Wins
Last night's $636 million Mega Millions® jackpot may not have been hit in Rhode Island, but local players still got lucky. Rhode Island's own progressive jackpot game had a $66,673 jackpot win last night. The ticket was sold at Petro Plus, 2851 Pawtucket Ave., Riverside, and has not yet been claimed.
The Mega Millions® drawing also produced 76,763 Rhode Island winners with prizes ranging from $1 to $5,000. The $5,000 winning ticket matched 4 numbers and the Mega Ball number. The winner did not add the Megaplier® option for an additional dollar. If the Megaplier® had been selected, the prize would have been multiplied by four, last night's Megaplier® number, to equal $20,000. Rite Aid on Newport Ave., East Providence, sold the $5,000 winning ticket.
Friday's estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $15 million. Thursday's estimated Wild Money jackpot is $20,000.
