$65,000 & $35,000 Holiday Instant Ticket Winners
Two Rhode Island Lottery players selected Holiday Instant Tickets that made their day, month and year! Prizes of $65,000 and $35,000 have been awarded.
A man from Richmond cashed in a winning $65,000 "Happy Holidays" Instant Ticket that he purchased this morning at Exeter Exxon, 561 South County Trail, Exeter. His wife couldn't believe it. They plan to put the money towards bills and their two daughters.
A woman from Cranston was thrilled that her "Peppermint 7's" Instant Ticket turned into $35,000. She plans on purchasing a new car and going out to lunch after she deposits her winnings. Legris Avenue Xtra Mart, 139 Legris Ave., West Warwick, sold the winning ticket.
