Two 40th Anniversary Instant Ticket Winners
The Rhode Island Lottery is celebrating 40 years and two recent 40th Anniversary Instant Ticket winners. A woman from Newport has won $20,000 playing the $2 40th Anniversary Instant Ticket. She was in tears when she called to tell her son the news. She plans to buy a new car. She purchased the winning ticket at Newport Mart, 52 East Main Rd., Middletown.
Additionally, a gentleman from Pawtucket won $40,000 playing the $5 40th Anniversary Instant Ticket. He plans to put some towards a vacation, some towards bills and the rest in the bank. Central Mart & Deli, 655 Central Ave., Pawtucket, sold that winning ticket.
The series of 40th Anniversary Instant Tickets kicked off the Lottery's year-long celebration. They include denominations of $1, $2, $5 and $10 and give players the opportunity to enter any non-winning tickets for additional prizes.
