$106,140 Wild Money Jackpot Claimed
The $106,140 jackpot from Saturday night’s Wild Money drawing was claimed this morning by a Johnston man.
The winner, a quiet man, said he randomly selected the winning numbers, which he’s been playing for the past few years and finally hit it big this weekend. The winning came at the perfect time, as he’s been unemployed since last January and his extended unemployment is just about to end. After being a single dad for the past 13 years, the only people he’s told of the win have been his five children.
The winning ticket was purchased at Douglas Wine & Spirits on Hartford Avenue in Johnston.
The Wild Money drawings take place three times a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, live on WPRI-TV at 7:29pm. Tomorrow night’s estimated jackpot is $20,000.
