$78,183 Wild Money Jackpot Claimed
$10,000 PowerBall® Winning Ticket
A woman from Hopkinton claimed the $78,183 Wild Money jackpot from the January 22 drawing. She bought a ticket with five separate Quick Picks and then watched the Wild Money drawing on television to see all five numbers drawn match the wager on her ticket. After having a few days to figure out the best way to use the money, she decided to pay some bills and put the remainder in the bank. Hopkinton Liquor Depot, 229 Main St., Ashaway, sold the winning ticket.
Tonight's estimated Wild Money jackpot is $24,000.
A $10,000 winning PowerBall® ticket was sold in Rhode Island for last night's drawing. The ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number. The standard payout for this type of win is $10,000. The winner did not purchase the Power Play® feature for an additional dollar on the wager. If the player had opted for Power Play®, the $10,000 prize would have been multiplied by 5, yesterday's Power Play® number, to equal $50,000. The winning ticket was purchased at A & G Fuel Depot, 644 Putnam Pike, Smithfield. The $10,000 prize has yet to be claimed.
Saturday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $289 million.
