$100,000 and $15,000 Instant Ticket Wins
A Johnston woman claimed a $100,000 prize from a Rhode Island Lottery "40th Anniversary" Instant Ticket one week before her birthday. She decided to buy the ticket on a whim and won the $100,000 on the first number she scratched. She said she will be getting married soon so the money can go towards her wedding, as well as to pay bills and go on vacation. Sunrise Market, 1222 Smith St., Providence, sold the winning ticket.
A $15,000 prize was also claimed by a Providence man who played the "Scratch Some Cash" Instant Game. He bought the ticket at Shaw's Supermarket, 8 Chapel View Blvd., Cranston, on Friday and carried it everywhere with him over the weekend.
