$200,000 Rhode Island PowerBall® Prize
A $200,000 winning ticket was sold in Rhode Island for Saturday night’s $58.4 million PowerBall® drawing. The ticket matched the first 5 numbers but not the PowerBall number.
The winner did not purchase the Power Play® feature for an additional dollar on the wager. If this player had opted for Power Play®, his or her $200,000 prize would have been multiplied by five, Saturday’s Power Play® number, increasing the prize to $1,000,000.
The $200,000 winning ticket was purchased from Rippy’s Liquor & Marketplace at 4158 South County Trail, Charlestown.
A group of three co-workers from a South County based company claimed the $200,000 prize first thing this morning. They have been playing together for over five years.
Saturday’s estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $68 million.
