Westerly Woman Claims $10,000 Winning Mega Millions® Ticket
A Westerly woman claimed the $10,000 winning Mega Millions® ticket that was sold in Rhode Island from last night's draw. Her winning ticket matched four numbers and the Mega Ball® to win the standard prize payout of $10,000. Had she purchased the Megaplier® feature for an additional dollar on her wager, her prize would have been multiplied by 3, the Megaplier® number for last night's draw, to win $30,000 instead of $10,000. She plans to donate some of her winnings to an animal rescue league, give some to her twin sister, and use the remainder to pay bills. Westerly Petromart, 249 Post Rd., Westerly, sold the winning ticket.
Friday's estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $119 million.
