$26,000 Wild Money Jackpot Winner!

June 5, 2015

$26,000 Wild Money Jackpot Winner!

RI Lottery winnerThomas Fagnand of North Providence arrived at the Rhode Island Lottery early this morning, eager to claim his $26,000 Wild Money prize from last night's drawing.

Fagnand announced that he never won anything over $40 before; he was still in complete shock. He pointed in the direction of his wife and said, "We've been up all night". Fagnand said he kept re-reading the numbers over and over, and when he finally realized the couple had won, he nearly fell out of his chair. He stated, "I am 71; my wife and I are getting older, so we plan to purely use the money won to enjoy the rest of the years we have left together."

The numbers he played represented their anniversary and birthdays. He purchased the winning ticket from Cumberland Farms, 1933 Mineral Spring Ave. in North Providence.
