$49,771 Wild Money Jackpot Claimed - $13,000 Keno Plus Winner

August 31, 2010

$49,771 Wild Money Jackpot Claimed
$13,000 Keno Plus Winner

One Rumford man will have some extra spending money for the long weekend after hitting the Wild Money jackpot worth $49,771 in Saturday night’s drawing.  The winner came in today to cash in his winning $1 quick pick ticket.  He plans on using the money to pay bills.  The winning ticket was sold from Cumberland Farms, 350 North Broadway, East Providence. 

The Wild Money drawings take place three times a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, live on WPRI-TV at 7:29pm.  Tonight’s estimated jackpot is $20,000.

There was also a lucky Keno Plus winner that came in to cash a $13,000 winning ticket.  The winner was a man from Quebec, Canada, who was in Rhode Island visiting his daughter.  He plans to use his winnings to travel a little more.  The winner played a $2 wager on an 8 spot game and matched 7 out of 8 numbers.  The standard payout for that is $1,300, but he doubled his wager and added Keno Plus, so when the 10 multiplier came up, his winnings turned into $13,000! JC’s Tavern, Inc. at 45 Nooseneck Hill Rd., West Greenwich, sold the winning ticket.
