Weekend's Drawings Resulted in more than $575,963 in Prizes
$287,788 Wild Money Jackpot Win & Daily Numbers Paid Out 486%

This weekend was a lucky one for Rhode Island Lottery players.  The Wild Money jackpot was hit by one player for $287,788, Friday's Daily Numbers drawing paid out 486%, and the PowerBall® drawing resulted in a $50,000 winning ticket in Rhode Island. 

Cumberland Farms, 1933 Mineral Spring Ave., North Providence, sold the $287,788 winning Wild Money ticket from Saturday's drawing.  The prize has not yet been claimed.  The jackpot had been climbing for 32 draws since it was last won on June 14. 
Wild Money drawings take place three times a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, live on WPRI-TV at 7:29 pm.  

Friday's Daily Numbers Evening drawing created a lot of happy winners. The lucky number drawn, 4 4 4 4, paid out 486%.  The Rhode Island Lottery awarded $238,175 worth of prizes, while taking in $48,989 in net sales.  There were a total of 60 tickets sold with a prize value of $2,500 and 350 tickets with a prize of $250.  As of noon today, $101,500 in prizes was claimed from this drawing.  A Warwick man claimed $25,000 in total after playing three $1 4-digit straight bets and one $2 4-digit straight bet.  He bought his tickets from Lakewood Liquors, 774 Warwick Ave., Warwick.

There was also a $10,000 Numbers winner from Sunday's Midday drawing.  A man from Providence placed a $2 wager on a 4-digit straight bet at Providence Food Corporation, 863 Broad St., Providence, to win the $10 grand.

The Daily Numbers drawings take place Monday through Saturday at 1:30 pm and 6:59 pm and at 1:30 pm and 6:29 pm on Sundays. 

Lastly, there was a $50,000 winning PowerBall® ticket sold for Saturday's $140.1 million drawing.  Stop & Shop, 1360 West Main Rd., Middletown, sold the winning ticket, which has not been claimed. The ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number.  The winner did not add the PowerPlay® feature for an additional dollar. If the winner had played PowerPlay®, the prize would have been multiplied by 2, Saturday's PowerPlay® number, to equal $100,000

PowerBall® drawings take place Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:59 pm.  Wednesday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $154 million.
