$86,330.90 Wild Money Jackpot Claimed
$10,000 Winning Keno Ticket
The winner of the $89,330.90 Wild Money jackpot from Tuesday night has picked up his prize.
A very happy Lincoln man came in to the Lottery headquarters with his wife to cash in his winning ticket. He told Lottery Validations staff that his wife didn’t believe he won when he first told her, so to prove it, he did a “Lottery winning dance”, which he then reenacted in the lobby of the Lottery. They plan to use the money to pay bills and buy a new car. The winning ticket was purchased at Fairlawn Mobil, 935 Smithfield Ave., Lincoln.
The Wild Money drawings take place three times a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, live on WPRI-TV at 7:29pm. There was also a $10,500 winning Keno ticket sold in Rhode Island. The winner, from Pompano Beach, Fla., played a one dollar wager on an eight spot game and matched all eight of his numbers to win $10,500. He joked that his wife will probably spend all of the winnings. He bought the winning ticket from Convenience Plus at 1501 Atwood Ave., Johnston.
