Two $10,000 Winning Tickets Claimed
Extraordinarily High Daily Numbers Payout
A gentleman residing in Marco Island, FL, claimed $10,000 from the July 9 Daily Numbers drawing. He played numbers 8 3 4 9 for his only son's birthday.
The $10,000 Daily Numbers ticket was purchased at Healy News Store, 231 Robinson St., Wakefield.
Last Thursday's Daily Numbers drawing paid out a remarkable 161%. The Rhode Island Lottery awarded $104,139 worth of prizes, while taking in $64,740 in net sales. The popular winning number combination drawn was 1 7 7 7.
Finally, the $10,000 Mega Millions® ticket from the July 5 drawing has been claimed by a gentleman from Cranston. The ticket matched four numbers and the Mega Ball number. The standard payout for this type of win is $10,000. If he had chosen to play the Megaplier® option for an additional $1, the $10,000 prize would have been multiplied by 4 to equal $40,000.
He plans to pay bills and save the rest. He purchased the winning ticket at Rite Aid, 570 Pontiac Ave., Cranston.
Tomorrow's estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $20 million.
