Luck on the First Try
Group of 16 Coworkers Split Mega Millions® Win

August 28, 2013

Luck on the First Try
Group of 16 Coworkers Split Mega Millions® Win

A Warwick man tried his luck on The Price is Right® Instant Ticket and won $35,000.  He had never played that game before and said he checked the ticket 15 times before believing it was a winner.  Colbea Enterprises, 2128 Elmwood Ave., Warwick, sold the winning ticket.  The winner plans to pay off some debt and invest the rest of the money in mutual funds.  Players have one more shot at winning $35,000 with a second chance drawing for non-winning The Price is Right® Instant Tickets.  The serial number from non-winning tickets can be entered for the second chance via the Rhode Island Lottery's VIP Club.

After 20 years of not playing the lottery because he didn't consider himself to be "lucky", a Johnston man decided to buy the Lucky Times 20 Instant Game and won $20,000, proving his theory wrong.  According to the winner, he might treat himself to a new hat, but otherwise, the money is going right in the bank.  He purchased the lucky ticket at Gulf Express, 2148 Broad St., Cranston.

A group of 16 coworkers from YRC Freight in Cumberland split a $10,000 Mega Millions® prize from the August 13 drawing.  The coworkers came from Rhode Island and Massachusetts and each walked away with a check for $431 after taxes.  The group did not add the Megaplier® option to their ticket.  If they had, their prize would have been multiplied by  four, the Megaplier® number for that drawing, to equal $40,000.  Diamond Hill Convenience, 2275 Diamond Hill Rd., Cumberland, sold the winning ticket.
