Instant Ticket Winners

Instant Ticket Winners

A lively Providence woman entered the Lottery Headquarters "praising the Lord" as she cashed in a winning $12,000 Patriots Instant Ticket. The woman stated that when she realized she had won she was overcome with emotion; she recently had to sacrifice overtime pay at work to care for her daughter. She plans to utilize the money won to help her daughter as well as other friends and family in need. She already called "one of her dear friends" and told her to expect a check in the mail.

The woman stated she had won $50.00 on a $2 Patriots Instant Ticket purchased from the same retailer the week prior and decided to test her luck again. The winning ticket was purchased at Ocean State Market, 341 Dyer Ave., Cranston.

Additionally, a Newport couple claimed a winning $35,000 MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES' CLUB™ Instant Ticket. The wife stated she was feeling lucky and as a result purchased the ticket at a local retailer. She wasn't sure if they had won right away, especially since the amount seemed too substantial to be true. She stated she "repeatedly reread the ticket even though her husband insisted they had won."

The couple stated they plan to use a large portion of their win to renovate their bathroom. In fact, upon leaving the Lottery Headquarters they intended on shopping for bathroom fixtures. The winning ticket was purchased at Bucci Combination Store LLC, 1&3 Thames St., Newport.
