$127,298 WILD MONEY JACKPOT HIT
Not one, but two Rhode Island Lottery tickets won $63, 649 after splitting last night's $127,298 Wild Money jackpot! Prime Food Mart, 2862 Hartford Ave., Johnston, and Lou's Cafe, 47 Summer St., Manville, each sold a winning ticket. A Johnston man claimed the winning ticket sold by Prime Food Mart. He said he always buys his lottery tickets there and will usually get one ticket for a Wild Money draw. This week, he picked up his Wild Money ticket on Monday, but when he went to the store on Tuesday to buy milk and cigarettes, the clerk automatically printed a Wild Money Quick Pick. The winner decided to keep the second ticket, which ended up being the ticket that matched all of the winning Wild Money numbers in last night's drawing. He said he plans to put the money in the bank for now.
Thursday's estimated Wild Money jackpot is $20,000.
