$180,599 Wild Money Jackpot Hit
$40,000 PowerBall® PowerPlay® Win
The $180,599 jackpot for Rhode Island’s own progressive jackpot game, Wild Money, was hit Saturday night. Broadway Mart at 1049 South Broadway, East Providence, sold the winning ticket. The prize has yet to be claimed.
The Wild Money drawings take place three times a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, live on WPRI-TV at 7:29pm.
Tuesday's estimated Wild Money jackpot is $20,000.
Saturday night also resulted in a $40,000 PowerBall® PowerPlay® win after the PowerBall® drawing. The ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number for Saturday's drawing. The standard payout for this type of win is $10,000. However, the winner added the Power Play® feature to the wager for an additional dollar, which increased the prize to $40,000.
Willett Avenue Xtra Mart at 973 Willett Ave., Riverside, sold the winning ticket, which is also unclaimed. The PowerBall® jackpot continues to climb, with an estimated jackpot for Wednesday's drawing at $60 million.
