Two 40th Anniversary Instant Ticket Winners

March 6, 2014

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.
