Wild Money Jackpot Hit
$33,000 Daily Numbers Win
The $74,081 jackpot for Rhode Island's own progressive jackpot game, Wild Money, was hit Saturday night. Phred's Drug, 1300 Oaklawn Ave., Cranston, sold the winning ticket. The prize has yet to be claimed. Tomorrow'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 7:29pm.
A Cranston man claimed a $33,000 Daily Numbers win from the January 20th Evening draw. He wagered $0.50 on twelve four-digit straight bets and $0.50 on twelve three-digit straight bets. He matched all four digits in the exact order they were drawn to win $2,500 for each four-digit straight bet and $250 for each three-digit bet, equaling $33,000. He usually plays random numbers, but on that day, he decided to play the last four digits of his friend's phone number. He plans to use the money won to go on a vacation. Shaw's Supermarket, 160A Old Tower Hill Rd., Wakefield, sold the winning tickets.
