$75,332 Wild Money Jackpot Hit
Plus $10,000 PowerBall® Winner
A $75,332 jackpot win made for a sleepless night for Leslie Pouliot of Riverside, RI (photo attached). Leslie hit the jackpot for Rhode Island’s progressive jackpot game, Wild Money, Saturday night, but didn’t check her numbers until Sunday morning. She was so thrilled about her big win she couldn’t sleep at all last night, and said she kept her husband awake too. She came in first thing this morning, overflowing with excitement, to claim her prize and said she plans to go on a cruise to Alaska with her winnings. Riverside Liquors on Bullocks Point Avenue in Riverside sold the winning ticket.
The Wild Money drawings take place three times a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, live on WPRI-TV at 7:29pm.
The Saturday night PowerBall® drawing also had a $10,000 winning ticket sold in Rhode Island. The ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number. The standard payout for this type of win is $10,000. The winner did not purchase the Power Play® feature for an additional dollar on the wager. If the player had opted for Power Play®, the $10,000 prize would have been multiplied by 4, Saturday’s Power Play® number, to equal $40,000.Wednesday’s estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $37 million.
Dave’s Marketplace on Airport Road in Warwick sold the winning ticket. The $10,000 prize has not been claimed.
