$98,974 Winning Wild Money Ticket Claimed
$20,000 "Black Diamonds" Instant Ticket Winner

The $98,974 jackpot hit in last night's Wild Money drawing was claimed today by a man from Coventry.  He and his co-worker have been buying Lottery tickets together for thirty years and plan on splitting the winnings. They were both heading straight to the bank. His co-worker plans to purchase a snow blower. Crestwood Wine & Spirits on Tiogue Avenue in Coventry 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.   Tonight’s estimated jackpot is $20,000. 

There was also another $20,000 "Black Diamonds" Instant Ticket claimed this morning by a man from Woonsocket.  He actually won the same amount on the same ticket this time last year!  This time, he plans to pay bills and buy new furniture. Cumberland Farms on North Main Street in Slatersville sold the winning ticket. Six $20,000 winning "Black Diamonds" Instant Tickets remain.
