$20,000 Keno Win and a $10,000 Powerball Ticket
A Pawtucket woman claimed a $20,000 Multi Chance Keno win. She wagered $1.00 on two 10 spot Keno games and added the Multi Chance feature, which resulted in free Bonus Games. She matched 9 out of the 10 numbers on both Bonus Game tickets to win $10,000 on each. She explained the day she won seemed no different than any other day; she dropped her husband off at work and then picked up a couple of Keno tickets. She never expected to win $20,000! She plans to utilize the money won to pay bills. She purchased the winning tickets at Capital Gulf, 201 Smith St., Providence.
A $10,000 winning PowerBall® ticket was sold in Rhode Island for Saturday 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 add the PowerPlay® feature to the wager for an extra dollar. 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 Gilmore's 411 North Broadway, Rumford. The $10,000 prize has yet to be claimed.
Wednesday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $100 million.
