$25,000 Daily Numbers Winner
Wild Money Jackpot Hit
A Johnston man claimed a $25,000 Daily Numbers win from yesterday's midday draw. He wagered $5.00 on a four-digit straight bet. He matched all four numbers in the exact order drawn to win $25,000. He has been playing the same numbers, 4435, for years. The number combination represents his business's phone number. He said "maybe I'll go to Italy" with the money won. The winning ticket was purchased at AJ's Variety, 1031 Plainfield St., Johnston.
The Daily Numbers are drawn at 1:30 p.m. and at 6:59 p.m. Monday through Saturday and on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. and 6:29 p.m.
Rhode Island's own progressive jackpot game, Wild Money, was hit last night. The winning $22,000 ticket, which has not yet been claimed, was sold by Shop N Go, 363 West Shore Rd., Warwick. Thursday's estimated Wild Money jackpot is $20,000.
The Wild Money drawings take place three times a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, live on WPRI-TV at 7:29 p.m.
