Narragansett Man Finds $20,000 Winning Ticket in his Truck
A Narragansett man claimed a $20,000 winning Mega Millions® Megaplier® ticket from the July 4th 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. He was cleaning out his truck prior to trading it in, when he found the winning ticket. He said he had no idea how much he had won until he claimed his prize. He plans to put the majority of his winnings towards the purchase of his new truck. Rite Aid, 20 Woodruff Ave., Narragansett, sold the winning ticket.
Tuesday's estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $76 million.
