Big Winners Cash In
$35,000 2nd Chance Winner, $20,000 Instant Ticket Winner,
$12,500 Daily Numbers Winner
Rhode Island Lottery players won big this week on a 2nd chance drawing, an Instant Game, and a daily draw.
A woman from Warwick was shocked when she received a phone call from the Rhode Island Lottery stating that she won the New England Patriots™ Instant Ticket 2nd Chance Grand Prize of $35,000. She screamed and cried tears of joy. Her husband had been unemployed for 8 months, and they are still playing catch up. Therefore, a lot of the money will go towards bills but she did say they may do something extra, like a well-deserved vacation. The Rhode Island Lottery encourages players to join the VIP club, a free membership, to find out which tickets offer 2nd chance opportunities.
Additionally, a gentleman from Pawtucket has cashed in a winning $20,000 "Lucky Times 20" Instant Ticket. He plans on taking a vacation. He purchased the ticket at Bestway Food Store, 823 Newport Ave., Pawtucket.
A Cranston man won a total of $12,500 playing Daily Number 0 3 2 6, from the March 18 draw. He played a blend of $1 straight and $.50 combination tickets at Fernandez Liquor and New Way Liquors, both on Elmwood Avenue in Providence.
