Pawtucket Has a $35,000 Instant Win & $10,000 PowerBallŪ Prize

April 20, 2015

Pawtucket Has a $35,000 Instant Win & $10,000 PowerBall® Prize

A Pawtucket woman will enjoy a $35,000 vacation day today after claiming the last top prize on the "Shimmering 7's" Instant Game.  According to the winner, she doesn't play much, but when she does, she always buys "Shimmering 7's" Instant Tickets from Blackstone Wine & Spirits, 275 Newport Ave., Pawtucket.  Each time she plays, she says she has the clerk rub the ticket for good luck, and believes it's been working.  She plans to use the winnings to pay bills and took today off to celebrate.

Saturday's PowerBall® jackpot may have been won in Puerto Rico, but one Rhode Island Lottery player will get a $10,000 prize.  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 3, Saturday's Power Play® number, to equal $30,000.  The winning ticket was purchased at Dexter Warehouse Liquors, 265 Barton St., Pawtucket. The $10,000 prize has yet to be claimed.

Wednesday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $40 million.
