$41,998 Wild Money Jackpot Claimed
$25,000 Mega Millions® Megaplier® Ticket Claimed

$41,998 Wild Money Jackpot Claimed
$25,000 Mega Millions® Megaplier® Ticket Claimed

A Wakefield man wasted no time claiming the $41,998 Wild Money jackpot from last night's drawing.  He learned he won by watching the drawing take place live on television last night and has already shared the news of his win with some of his coworkers.  He purchased the winning ticket at Rite Aid, 20 Woodruff Ave., Narragansett, and plans to use the money to pay off his car and save the rest. 

The Wild Money drawings take place three times a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, live on WPRI-TV at 7:29pm.  Thursday's estimated Wild Money jackpot is $20,000.

There was also a $25,000 Mega Millions® Megaplier® ticket claimed from the March 27 drawing by a Providence man.  The Quick Pick ticket matched four numbers and the Mega Ball number for the standard win of $5,000.  However, since the player opted to add the Megaplier® feature to the ticket for an additional $1, the prize was multiplied by 5, the Megaplier® number for that drawing, to equal $25,000.  Colbea Enterprises LLC, 457 Benefit St., Providence, sold the winning ticket.  The winner knew he won right after the drawing, but said he still hasn't decided how he'll spend the money, so he wasn't in a rush to claim his prize.

Friday's estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $233 million
