North Smithfield Man Claims $20,000 Mega Millions® Megaplier® Ticket
A North Smithfield man claimed a $20,000 winning Mega Millions® ticket from the May 2nd draw. His ticket matched four numbers and the Mega Ball to win the standard prize payout of $5,000. Because he paid an additional dollar on his wager by opting for the Megaplier® feature, his prize was multiplied by 4, the Megaplier® number for that draw, to win $20,000. The winner was shocked to learn about his win since he initially thought he only won $1,000. He said he plans to use some of the money won to book a vacation. Cumberland Farms, 261 South Main St., Woonsocket, sold the winning ticket.
Tuesday's estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $25 million.
