$53,919 Wild Money Jackpot Claimed
$40,000 PowerBall® PowerPlay® Win
The Wild Money jackpot from the June 5 drawing was claimed today by a Woonsocket man. He thought he had only won $100, so he and his family were all very surprised to learn they won $53,919. The winner purchased his ticket at Stop Quick Mart, 814 Diamond Hill Rd., Woonsocket. He hasn't decided what he'll do with his winnings but is pondering a new car.
Tonight's estimated Wild Money jackpot is $28,000.
Last night's PowerBall® drawing produced one $40,000 winning ticket. The winning ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number, for a standard payout of $10,000. However, the player also added the PowerPlay® feature for an extra dollar, so his prize was multiplied by 4, last night's PowerPlay® number, to equal $40,000.
Hess Express, 305 Phenix Ave., Cranston, sold the winning ticket.
Saturday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $80 million.
