$200,000 Rhode Island PowerBall® Winner
There was a $200,000 winning ticket sold in Rhode Island for last night’s $72.9 million PowerBall® drawing. The ticket matched the first five numbers, but not the PowerBall number. The standard payout for this type of win is $200,000. However, if this player had opted to purchase the Power Play® feature for an additional dollar on the wager, the $200,000 prize would have been multiplied by four, Wednesday’s Power Play® number, to equal $800,000.
The $200,000 winning ticket was purchased from Jefferson Global at 15 Jefferson Blvd., Warwick. The prize has yet to be claimed.
Saturday’s estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $83 million.
