$95,101 WILD MONEY JACKPOT WINNER
A woman from Providence hasn't slept since Saturday when she learned she hit the $95,101 Wild Money jackpot. She said she called the winning numbers hotline at least 27 times and asked a Lottery Retailer to check it, who told her to go to the Rhode Island Lottery Headquarters to claim. First thing this morning, she did just that. With tears in her eyes, she told Lottery staff that she wants to help her family, pay off her car and put the rest in the bank.
She purchased the winning Quick Pick at Barbosa Liquors, 963 Narragansett Blvd., Providence.
As part of the Rhode Island Lottery's 40th Anniversary celebration, players who spend $5 or more on a single Wild Money ticket, will receive a free $1 Wild Money Quick Pick. The special promotion continues through April 26.
The Wild Money drawings take place three times a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, live on WPRI at 7:29pm.
Tomorrow's estimated Wild Money jackpot is $20,000.
