A BIG Winning Weekend
$1 Million PowerBall® Winner
Saturday's $88 million PowerBall® drawing resulted in $1,000,000 and $10,000 winning tickets sold in Rhode Island.
The $1,000,000 ticket matched five numbers but not the PowerBall® number, for the standard payout of $1,000,000. However, if the PowerPlay® feature was added for an extra dollar, the prize would have increased to $2,000,000. The ticket was purchased at Colbea Enterprises, 457 Benefit St., Providence. The prize has yet to be claimed.
The $10,000 PowerBall® ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number. The standard payout for this type of win is $10,000. The winner did not purchase the PowerPlay® feature for an additional dollar on the wager. If the player had opted for PowerPlay®, the $10,000 prize would have been increased to $40,000. The ticket was purchased at Grasso's Service Center, 35 Plainfield St., Providence. The prize has yet to be claimed.
Finally, the $10,000 Mega Millions® ticket from the September 17 drawing has been claimed by a woman from Warwick. She said that it came at a good time. Stop & Shop, 300 Quaker Lane, Warwick, sold the winning ticket.
Wednesday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $108 million. Tomorrow's estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $14 million.
