CRANSTON, R.I. (AP) -- Perhaps there's luck in their genes.

A man from East Providence has claimed more than $180,000 in lottery winnings, a day after his son won $1,000 in a different game.
   
Rhode Island Lottery officials say the man on Monday claimed the $180,599 jackpot from the Wild Money game's Saturday night drawing. He was accompanied to lottery headquarters in Cranston by his wife and son, who had just won $1,000 of his own on an instant ticket on Friday.
   
Lottery officials didn't release the winner's name.
   
The winner says he wants to take his wife of 35 years on a vacation, but he's not sure how else he'll spend the money.
   
He bought the ticket at an East Providence convenience store.
