An East Providence man said he decided to buy a "50X the Money" Instant Game when he was "feeling lucky" yesterday.  Number 23, which is the same number on his soccer jersey, was the number on his ticket that matched a "Winning Number" for a $40,000 win!  He said he immediately called his parents to tell them the news, but they didn't believe him.  The winner plans to use the money to go back to school.  Martins Petroleum Inc., 481 Warren Ave., East Providence, sold the winning ticket.
