Rhode Island Puts the "Mega" in Mega Millions® $1,000,000; $250,000 and $10,000 Winners

April 17, 2013

Rhode Island Puts the "Mega" in Mega Millions®
$1,000,000; $250,000 and $10,000 Winners

Last night's $74 million Mega Millions® drawing turned out to be a big one in Rhode Island resulting in prizes of  $1,000,000,  $250,000, and  $10,000.

Two of the tickets matched five numbers for the $250,000 win.  One of the winners purchased the Megaplier® feature for an extra dollar on the wager, which automatically turned the $250,000 prize into $1,000,000.

Stop & Shop at 70 Mendon Road in Cumberland sold the $1,000,000 winning ticket, and Shaw's Supermarket at 160 Old Tower Hill Road in Wakefield sold the $250,000 winning ticket.  Both tickets remain unclaimed.

Additionally, another 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 Megaplier®, the $10,000 prize would have been multiplied by two, last night's Megaplier® number, to equal $20,000.

The $10,000 winning ticket was sold at Nayco Stores, 198 Front St., Lincoln.  It remains unclaimed.

Friday's estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $83 million.
