$20,000 Birthday Win

May 1, 2013

$20,000 Birthday Win
$30,000 Mega Millions® Megaplier® Ticket Claimed

A Tiverton woman won $20,000 playing Multi Chance Keno yesterday.  The win comes just one week after her 75th birthday so she'll use the winnings to celebrate.  She'll also share some money with her family.  The winner bought her ticket at Stone Bridge Liquors in Tiverton where she wagered $2 on 10 spots and doubled her wager to add the Multi Chance Keno feature.  With the Multi Chance feature, she won two free additional games.  On one of those bonus games, she matched 9 out of the 10 numbers, which normally pays out $8,500 on a $2 wager, but because she won on a bonus game, she received the increased payout of $20,000.

The $30,000 Mega Millions® Megaplier® winner from the April 24 drawing has come forward.  The North Kingstown man joked that he'll be handing the check over to his wife who already has plans for the money, including paying bills and going on vacation.  The winning ticket matched four numbers and the Mega Ball number, for a standard payout of $10,000.  As always, he opted to purchase the Megaplier® for an extra dollar on the wager, so his winnings were multiplied by three, the Megaplier® number for that drawing, to equal $30,000

Colonial Wine & Spirits, North Kingstown, sold the winning ticket.

Friday's estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $126 million.
