$10,000 Mega Millions® Winner in Rhode Island
Although last night's $25 million Mega Millions® jackpot was hit in California, there was still 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, last night's Megaplier® number, to equal $40,000.
The winning ticket was purchased from AJ's Variety at 1031 Plainfield St., Johnston. The $10,000 prize has yet to be claimed. There were also seven $600 winning tickets from last night's drawing to be claimed.
Friday's estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $12 million.
