$40,000 PowerBall® PowerPlay® Ticket Claimed
A North Scituate man claimed the $40,000 winning PowerBall® PowerPlay® ticket from the June 25th drawing. The winner learned of the prize when he was checking some old lottery tickets. His winning ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number, for a standard payout of $10,000. However, the player also added the PowerPlay® feature for an extra dollar, so his prize was multiplied by 4, the PowerPlay® number for that drawing, to equal $40,000. He said he plans to use the money to pay bills and save for his son's college fund.
Hess Express, 305 Phenix Ave., Cranston, sold the winning ticket.
Wednesday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $50 million.
