4th of July Wild Money Jackpot Win
$20,000 Mega Millions® Megaplier® Ticket Sold in R.I. and Two Instant Ticket Top Prize Winners
The $156,259 jackpot for Rhode Island's own progressive jackpot game, Wild Money, was hit last night. Rite Aid, 1086 Willett Ave., Riverside, sold the winning ticket. The prize has yet to be claimed. Tomorrow's estimated Wild Money jackpot is $20,000.
A $20,000 winning Mega Millions® Megaplier® ticket was sold in Rhode Island for Monday night's draw. The winning ticket matched four numbers and the Mega Ball to win the standard $5,000 prize. However, the winner purchased the Megaplier® feature for an additional $1. Therefore, the standard $5,000 prize was multiplied by 4, Monday's Megaplier® number, to win $20,000. Rite Aid, 20 Woodruff Ave., Narragansett, sold the winning ticket. The prize has yet to be claimed. Friday's estimated Mega Millions jackpot is $186 million.

A Providence man claimed a $50,000 "$50,000 Fortune" Instant Ticket top prize. He plans to use his winnings to buy a new car. Barbosa Liquors, 963 Narragansett Blvd., Providence, sold the winning ticket.
