$152,635 Wild Money Jackpot Hit
The jackpot for Rhode Island’s own progressive jackpot game, Wild Money, was hit last night making one lucky Warwick man $152,635 richer.
The winner came in this morning to pick up his check and said he was going to put it in the bank for now. He’s got twin eight-year-old daughters and told them that now the family would be able to rent a beach house in Point Judith this summer, which he originally didn’t think they’d be able to afford. The winner said he picked the lucky number combination, 2 6 11 28 30, himself using his parents’ birthdates. He bought the winning ticket from Sandy Lane Gas & Convenience at 1015 Sandy Lane in Warwick.
The Wild Money drawings take place three times a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, live on WPRI-TV at 7:29pm.
Saturday’s estimated Wild Money jackpot is $20,000.
