$18,125 Daily Numbers® Winner and $10,000 PowerBall® Win
A Hallandale, Florida, gentleman won $18,125 playing Daily Numbers. He is in Rhode Island visiting his brother and said he first saw the lucky number he played on a license plate. He then continued to see the number repeatedly throughout the week. He wagered $1.00 on three 4-digit straight bets using number 1 1 1 4 to win $15,000. He also wagered $1.00 on three 3-digit straight bets playing number 1 1 1 to win $1,500, and placed a $0.50 4-digit combo bet with number 1 1 4 to win $3,125. All tickets were for the August 5th Evening Draw. He plans to put the money in the bank.
The winning tickets were purchased at Shree MAA of RI Inc., 480 Pontiac Ave., Cranston.
A $10,000 winning PowerBall® ticket was sold in Rhode Island for last night'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 2, last night's Power Play® number, to equal $20,000. The winning ticket was purchased at Four Corners Food Mart, 327 Warren Ave., East Providence. The $10,000 prize has yet to be claimed.
Saturday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $50 million.
