Lunchtime proves to be a lucky time for Rhode Island Lottery players this week. A man from Boston, Mass., was in Rhode Island for work yesterday when he stopped at Iggy's Food Mart on Market Street in Warren to get gas, a bite to eat, and also play one Keno game before driving back. He matched seven out of seven numbers to win $4,500. However, he paid an extra $1 for the Plus feature and his prize was multiplied by four to equal $18,000. After he claimed his prize, he said he was going straight to the bank while still on his lunch hour and then would go back to work.
A man from Middletown also won big while on his lunch break. He bought one Instant Ticket and won $20, and then used those winnings to buy a Lucky Times 20 Instant Game from 7-Eleven on Connell Highway in Newport. That ticket turned out to be a $20,000 winner! Once the player overcame his shock and disbelief, he claimed his winnings which he said he would use to buy a new truck.
