$79,792 Wild Money Jackpot Claimed Before the Blizzard
The $79,782 Wild Money jackpot ticket from Tuesday's drawing has been claimed by a woman from Providence. She plays the game all the time and actually claimed $1,500 on Wild Money the day before she hit the jackpot. She plans to fix up her house, pay off her mortgage and put the rest towards college tuition for her two daughters.
She purchased the winning ticket at Prime Drug at 613 Cranston Street in Cranston.
The Wild Money drawings take place three times a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, live on WPRI-TV at 7:29pm. Saturday's estimated jackpot is $22,000.
