$65,726 Wild Money Jackpot Claimed
$30,000 Instant Game Winner
The jackpot for Rhode Island’s own progressive jackpot game, Wild Money, was hit Saturday night making one lucky North Smithfield family $65,726 richer.
The winner said she had a feeling on Saturday that they should play, so she sent her husband out to buy 3 quick pick numbers. The next day when they were checking to see if they had any winners, her husband slowly revealed each winning number. When she found out they had won the Wild Money jackpot she started to cry. They plan on using the money to pay off their daughter’s college loans and any other bills they have. The winning ticket was purchased from Cumberland Farms at 302 North Main St., Slatersville.
The Wild Money drawings take place three times a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, live on WPRI-TV at 7:29pm. The winning continued when Sinfo Reyes (photo attached) of Providence cashed in his $30,000 from The Dog instant ticket. Ironically, he and his wife said they have cats, not dogs. They also said they will pay bills with their winnings. That winning instant game was sold by Stop & Shop at 204 Garfield Ave., Cranston.
Tuesday’s estimated Wild Money jackpot is $20,000.
