$50,000 "Wild Cherry Crossword" Instant Ticket Winner
A woman from Portsmouth has welcomed fall $50,000 richer. She played the "Wild Cherry Crossword" Instant Ticket and thought she just won $2,000. Upon arriving at Rhode Island Lottery Headquarters, however, she discovered it was actually a $50,000 winning ticket.
She's very excited to be able to pay off bills and said a vacation sounds nice right about now as well.
