Two $10,000 Winning Mega Millions® Tickets Sold in Rhode Island
Rhode Island had two $10,000 winning Mega Millions® tickets sold for last night’s drawing. Each ticket matched four numbers and the Mega Ball number. The standard payout for this type of win is $10,000. The winners did not purchase the Megaplier® feature for an additional dollar on the wager. If the players had opted for the Megaplier®, the $10,000 prizes would have been multiplied by 2, last night’s Megaplier® number, to equal $20,000.
One of the winning tickets was purchased from Shaw's Supermarket at 8 Chapel View Blvd., Cranston. Manville Road General at 37 Manville Rd., Woonsocket, sold the other winning ticket. Both prizes are unclaimed.
Friday’s estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $24 million.
