Rhode Island Lottery Winners Galore
A Cranston man claimed a total of $26,040 in Daily Numbers tickets. He wagered $1 on five 4-digit combination bets and won $5,208 on each. The winning number combination was 1 9 3 2, the year he was born. The winning tickets were purchased at Stop & Shop, 200 Atwood Ave., Cranston.
Another Cranston man cashed in a $22,500 Keno Plus ticket. He wagered $1 on 7 spots and matched seven out of seven numbers to win the standard payout of $4,500. However, since he opted to play an extra dollar for Keno Plus, and a 5X multiplier came up, his prized turned into $22,500. He plans to buy something nice for his wife this upcoming holiday season, especially since he played her numbers! The winning ticket was purchased at Convenience Plus, 1501 Atwood Ave., Johnston.
The $213 million winning PowerBall® jackpot ticket may have been hit in California for last night's drawing, but someone in Rhode Island is waking up $10,000 richer. The ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number, for a standard payout of $10,000. The winner did not purchase the Power Play® feature for an additional dollar on the wager. If the player had opted for Power Play®, the $10,000 prize would have been increased to $40,000. The winning ticket was purchased at Columbus Mini Mart, 232 Columbus Ave., Pawtucket.
Tuesday's Mega Millions® drawing had a 5X multiplier come up, and a Cranston man is very happy to win $2,500! His ticket matched four numbers, but not the Mega Ball number, for a standard payout of $500. However, since he opted to play the Megaplier® feature for an additional dollar on the wager, his prize increased to $2,500. Prior to the game change on October 20, the standard payout for matching four numbers and not the Mega Ball number was $150 and the highest multiplier was 4X.
