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.
    
Officials with the Rhode Island Lottery 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 with his wife and son, who had just won $1,000 of his own on an instant ticket on Friday.
    
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 Broadway Mart on South Broadway in East Providence.
