$30,000 PowerBall® PowerPlay® Prize Claimed
A Saunderstown man claimed the $30,000 winning PowerBall® PowerPlay® ticket from the June 14 drawing. Since he learned of the win, he said he has felt exhilarated, nervous, and sleepless, but overall the money is a blessing. The winner plans to use the money to pay bills and buy a car.
The winning ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number, for a standard payout of $10,000. However, since he added the PowerPlay® feature for an extra dollar, his prize was increased to $30,000.
Wickford Mini Mart, 684 Boston Neck Rd., Wickford, sold the winning ticket.
Saturday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $60 million.
