$1 Million PowerBallŪ Ticket CLAIMED

October 15, 2013

Rhode Island Lottery winner$1 Million PowerBall® Ticket CLAIMED

The $1 million PowerBall® ticket from the October 5 drawing was claimed by Dashiel Florez of Providence this morning. He was accompanied by his teary-eyed mother and plans to buy a house for her.  He was nervous and excited at the same time and said it didn't seem real.

Mr. Florez purchased the winning ticket on a whim at Colbea Enterprises, 457 Benefit St., Providence on the day of the draw at 9:45pm, just five minutes before the sales cut off time of 9:50pm.  He played a combination of numbers from his nephews' birthdays. The ticket matched all five numbers, but not the PowerBall® number.  Also, if he had opted for the PowerPlay® feature for an extra dollar, the prize would have increased to $2 million. 

Tomorrow's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $156 million.
