$40,000 PowerBall® PowerPlay® Winner
No one hit last night's estimated $105 million PowerBall® jackpot. However, one lucky Rhode Island Lottery player is holding a winning $40,000 PowerBall® PowerPlay® ticket.
The winning ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number, for a standard payout of $10,000. However, the winner added the PowerPlay® feature for an extra dollar which increased the prize to $40,000. The prize has yet to be claimed.
Sam's Food Store, 460 Pontiac Ave., Cranston, sold the winning ticket.
The Rhode Island Lottery will be holding a #RILOTjackpotchasers promotion at Phred's Drug, 1300 Oaklawn Ave., Cranston, from 12:00 - 1:00pm today giving out free Instant Tickets and beach balls with every $6 PowerBall PowerPlay purchase. Alerts for the #RILOTjackpotchasers promotions are done only through the Lottery's Facebook and Twitter pages.
Saturday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $127 million.
