$10,000 Million Dollar Raffle Prize Set to Expire
$35,000 Winter Winfall Instant Ticket Winner & $18,000 Keno Plus Winner
A $10,000 ticket from last year's Million Dollar Raffle game will expire on New Year's Eve, exactly one year from the date of the drawing. It was purchased at Bestway Food Store, 823 Newport Ave., Pawtucket. If the prize does not get claimed, it will be turned over to the State's General Fund.
The Lottery is also waiting for someone to cash in the winning $25,000 a year for-life prize from the Lucky for Life® drawing on December 23, 2013. Winning numbers for the past twelve months of drawings can be found on the Rhode Island Lottery's Website Winning Numbers pages. With this reminder to check old and new tickets, the Lottery is hopeful that the lucky winners will come forward and claim their prizes soon.
A gentleman from Yonkers, New York, didn't wait long to cash in his winning $35,000 Winter Winfall Instant Ticket. He was visiting Rhode Island with family and decided to purchase the ticket at Cumberland Farms, 2643 Hartford Ave., Johnston, on Christmas day. He now plans to take a vacation to Florida this February.
Additionally, an $18,000 Keno Plus ticket was claimed by a woman from Cranston. She was playing at Colbea Enterprises, 242 County St., Barrington. She wagered $2 on a 7-spot game to win $9,000. However, the 2X multiplier came up and doubled her prize to $18,000. She plans to spend it wisely.
