$10,000 Instant Ticket Sitting in Car Visor since December
$10,000 PowerBallŪ Ticket Sold in RI

$10,000 Instant Ticket Sitting in Car Visor since December
$10,000 PowerBall® Ticket Sold in RI

Tucked away in a car visor, unscratched, since Christmas was a $10,000 winning "Santa Cash" Instant Ticket. The owner of the ticket, a woman from Warren, said she completely forgot about the ticket until she found it in her car last week and scratched it while on her lunch break.  When she glimpsed the $10,000 prize, she raced into work to have her coworkers review the ticket and confirm she won.  She said she plans to use the money to pay bills and go shopping.

There was a $10,000 winning PowerBall® ticket sold in Rhode Island for Saturday's 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 4, Saturday's Power Play® number, to equal $40,000.  The winning ticket was purchased at Marty's Liquor, 945 Namquid Dr., Warwick. The $10,000 prize has yet to be claimed.

Wednesday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $119 million.
