Christmas Spending Money
$38,236 Wild Money Jackpot Hit
Rhode Island Lottery winners have a little extra cash for gifts this holiday season. Especially for someone who hit the $38,236 Wild Money jackpot in Saturday night's drawing. Bristol Food Mart at 259 Wood Street in Bristol sold the winning ticket. The prize has yet to be claimed.
A gentleman from Portsmouth has claimed a $12,300 winning Keno Plus ticket. He played$10 on a 5-spot Quick Pick and matched 5 out of the 5 numbers for a standard payout of $4,100. Since he opted to play Keno Plus for an extra $1, and the 3 multiplier was drawn, his prize was tripled to $12,300. He plans to put the money towards Christmas shopping. Vickers Liquor at 274 Bellevue Avenue in Newport sold the winning ticket.
Soon after, Myra Ricciof Johnston couldn't believe she won $10,000 playing the "Cash Bonus" Instant Ticket. She and her son mentioned that they might go to Florida and will have a very nice Christmas this year. Myra purchased her ticket from BD Mart at 1356 Cranston Street in Cranston.
