$20,000 PowerBall® PowerPlay® Winner
$20,000 Instant Win
The PowerBall® jackpot continues to climb to $192 million and Rhode Island had a $20,000 PowerBall® PowerPlay® winner in Saturday night's drawing.
A Hope Valley man cashed in that winning ticket and said he plans to use the money to pay bills. He said he plays PowerBall® each week and subscribes to the Rhode Island Lottery's winning numbers email service, which is where he saw the drawing results and learned of his big win.
The winning ticket, purchased at Stop & Shop, 3 Stilson Rd., Richmond,
matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number, winning the standard payout of $10,000. The winner also purchased the PowerPlay® feature for an additional dollar on the wager which multiplied the winnings by two, Saturday's PowerPlay® number, to equal $20,000.
There was also a $20,000 win on the "Loteria" Instant Ticket. The Providence man purchased his winning ticket from Legris Avenue Xtra Mart, 139 Legris Ave., West Warwick. He said "Loteria" is one of his favorite Rhode Island Lottery games. He plans to use the money for his family.
