$40,000 Mega Millions® Winner in Rhode Island
One lucky Rhode Island Lottery player won $40,000 playing Mega Millions® for Friday night's drawing.
The winning ticket matched four numbers and the Mega Ball number, for a standard payout of $10,000. The player opted to purchase the Megaplier® for an extra dollar on the wager, which multiplied the $10,000 prize by four, Friday night’s Megaplier® number, to equal $40,000. The prize has not been claimed.
Cumberland Farms at 353 Waterman Ave., Smithfield, sold the winning ticket.
Tuesday's estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is at $32 million. Wednesday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $250 million.
