$36,096 Wild Money Ticket Claimed
2nd $10,000 Million Dollar Raffle Early Bird Ticket Claimed
The $36,096 jackpot hit in last Thurdsday’s Wild Money drawing was claimed by a Providence man. Cumberland Farms at 1297 Broad St., Providence, sold the winning ticket. The estimated jackpot for tomorrow night’s Wild Money drawing is $22,000.
In addition, a man from Sharon, Mass., claimed the second $10,000 Early Bird winning ticket for the Rhode Island Lottery’s Million Dollar Raffle Game. The drawing took place on November 5 and the winning number was 0 0 2 2 0 1.
The winning ticket was sold from Rainone’s Liquors on Smith Street in Providence. The winner has a 20-month-old son, whom he plans to spoil with the money. He also bought a few other tickets and was very hopeful that he’d be back to claim more Million Dollar Raffle prizes.
There are three more Early Bird Drawings remaining, and then the Grand Prize Drawing taking place on New Year’s Eve. The next drawing for $10,000 will be held this Thursday, November 19. To be entered into the Early Bird and Grand Prize Drawings, players need only purchase a Million Dollar Raffle Ticket.
The $10,000 Early Bird winning numbers will be announced at Twin River at 8pm on the nights of the drawings. Winners need not be present to win, but if they are, Twin River will give them a Twin River prize pack consisting of a $100 Twin River gift card and tickets to an upcoming show.
The winning number for the million dollar prize on New Year’s Eve will also be announced at Twin River at 11pm. The additional winning numbers for the $10,000 and $1,000 prizes for that night, as well as all of the other winning numbers, will be posted to the Rhode Island Lottery’s website, www.rilot.com.
