$10,000 Mega Millions® Winner in Rhode Island
Friday night's Mega Millions® drawing resulted in a $10,000 winning ticket sold in Rhode Island. The ticket matched four numbers and the Mega Ball number. The standard payout for this type of win is $10,000. The winner did not purchase the Megaplier® feature for an additional dollar on the wager. If the player had opted for the Megaplier®, the $10,000 prize would have been multiplied by four, Friday’s Megaplier® number, to equal $40,000.
The winning ticket was purchased from Perry's Liquor at 240 Columbus Ave., Pawtucket. The $10,000 prize has yet to be claimed.
Tomorrow's estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $53 million.
