$100,000 "Pinball Wizard" Ticket Claimed
Plus PowerBall®, Wild Money and Daily Numbers Winners
A Providence man cashed in a "Pinball Wizard" Instant Ticket winning $100,000. He picked up the ticket at Harry's Variety, 562 Plainfield St., Providence, and said he will use the money to pay bills and take a vacation.
Saturday night's PowerBall® drawing proved lucky for a player that bought a ticket at Wickford Mini Mart, 684 Boston Neck Rd., Wickford. The winner has not come forward, but the ticket is a $30,000 winner. Four out of five numbers, plus the PowerBall® number, matched the numbers drawn on June 14, winning the standard payout of $10,000. However, the player opted to add PowerPlay® to the ticket for an additional dollar, so the prize was multiplied by three, Saturday's PowerPlay® number, to equal $30,000.
Wild Money players are on a jackpot winning frenzy. Saturday's Wild Money drawing had a $24,000 jackpot win. This is the third jackpot win for this game since June 5. A Johnston woman came in first thing this morning to claim her prize. She said she will use the winnings to buy her daughter a car. Pick N Pay Food Mart, 94 George Waterman Rd., Johnston, sold the winning ticket. Tuesday's estimated Wild Money jackpot is $20,000.
A Chepachet man found his luck playing the daily Numbers game. He played a $2 straight wager on the 4-digit number 2 1 1 0, which came up in that exact order for the June 12 evening drawing, resulting in a $10,000 win. The winner said the number has no significance, but 2 is his lucky number so he always makes sure to have a 2 in whatever number he plays. The winner bought his ticket at Pinewood Pub Pizza, 16 Terry Ln., Chepachet, and plans to use the winnings to pay bills.
