New Year`s Wins

January 2, 2015

New Year's Wins

Two days into 2015 and a Warren man is still celebrating after winning $37,777 on the "Emerald Green" Instant Ticket. He said he bought the ticket as a present for himself at Christmas because he had a little extra money.  His immediate plan for the money is to buy some new Patriots™ clothing since he is a huge fan. The Corner Store at 370 Child St., Warren, sold the winning ticket. 

There was also a $20,000 winning "Lucky Times 20" Instant Ticket claimed first thing this morning by a Cumberland man.  That ticket was purchased at 7-Eleven, 7330 Post Rd., North Kingstown.  There are nine more $20,000 prizes remaining to be claimed on the "Lucky Times 20" Instant Game.

One lucky Rhode Islander started 2015 off with a $10,000 PowerBall® win on the New Year's Eve drawing.  The ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number.  The standard payout for this type of win is $10,000.  The winner did not purchase the Power Play® feature for an additional dollar on the wager.  If the player had opted for Power Play®, the $10,000 prize would have been multiplied by 2, Wednesday night's Power Play® number, to equal $20,000.  The winning ticket was purchased at Cumberland Convenience, 427 High St., Cumberland. The $10,000 prize has yet to be claimed.

Saturday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $131 million.
