Providence Man Hits Big for the Third Time
$72,300 Wild Money Jackpot Hit
A man from Providence is on a roll. Last night, he won a total of $47,087 playing Daily Number 7 7 5 5 on eight $.50 combination tickets. This isn't the only time he's hit big. In February of 2012, he won $58,340 playing the same Daily Number, 7 7 5 5. On top of that, he won $25,000 playing Lucky for Life® in July of 2012.
With his latest win, he plans to put the money in the bank and might buy a new car. He purchased all the winning Daily Numbers tickets from last night's drawing at Standard Liquor, 829 Eddy St., Providence.
In addition, Rhode Island's own in-state progressive jackpot game, Wild Money, was hit last night for $72,300. The winning ticket was purchased at Shreega Inc., 830 High St., Cumberland. The ticket has yet to be claimed.
The Wild Money drawings take place three times a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, live on WPRI-TV at 7:29pm. Thursday's estimated jackpot is $20,000.
