$35,000 Winner Considers Vacation After Viewing Today's Forecast
Wild Money Jackpot Hit
Fredy Ramos of Providence braved today's winter weather conditions to claim a $35,000 "Hold 'Em Poker" Instant Ticket top prize. He said he is still in shock and doesn't have any immediate plans. However, the snow storm brewing outside had him thinking "maybe I'll book a vacation." He purchased the winning ticket at Anthony's Drug Store, 219 Manton Ave., North Providence.
Additionally, the $31,544 jackpot for Rhode Island's own progressive jackpot game, Wild Money, was hit on Saturday night. Grab 'N Go, 350 North Broadway, East Providence, sold the winning ticket. The prize has yet to be claimed. Tuesday's estimated Wild Money jackpot is $20,000.
