Wild Money is Rhode Island Lottery’s progressive jackpot game. That means that the jackpot – which starts at $20,000 – gets progressively larger until it’s won.

Wild Money replaced the game Money Roll, in January of 2002. The biggest ever jackpot the game has reached is $601,206. This was won back in March 25, 2006.

Wild Money Drawing Schedule

Wild Money has drawings thrice a week – Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 7:29 PM EST.

Be sure to purchase your tickets before 7:24 PM on draw nights to qualify for that evening’s draw.

Wild Money Payout and Mechanics

To play Wild Money, players have to pick 5 numbers from 1 to 35. This represents 1 play or board, and up 5 boards can be entered in a single play slip. As expected, the Quick Pick option is available and you can play the same board(s) for up to 15 consecutive drawings.

Wild Money costs $1 for each board.

Extra Ball

After each drawing, an Extra Ball is drawn from the remaining 30 numbers. This is used to determine secondary prizes.
