$91,708 WILD MONEY JACKPOT HIT
$10,000 Bingo Winner
A woman from Providence hit Saturday's $91,708 Wild Money jackpot. Her husband purchased the winning ticket for her at Hess Express, 440 Smithfield Ave., Providence. She was still in shock when she claimed, so she hasn't thought about what she'll do with the money, maybe go on a vacation.
The drawings for Wild Money, Rhode Island's own in-state progressive jackpot game, take place three times a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, live on WPRI at 7:29pm.
Tuesday's estimated Wild Money jackpot is $20,000.
Additionally, a gentleman from Cranston decided to give Bingo a try when he saw others playing it at Twin Oaks, 100 Sabra St., Cranston, during lunch this past Friday. He knew that he won, but had no idea he won $10,000 until he arrived at the Rhode Island Lottery headquarters to claim. He plans to use the money to pay bills.
