$10,000 PowerBall® Winner
A woman from Boston claimed the $10,000 PowerBall® ticket sold in Rhode Island for Saturday night's drawing. The ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number. The numbers she played represent her family member's birthdays.
She was in state spending time with her family and celebrating the fact that she passed her nursing board exam this past weekend. Before heading home, she stopped and purchased the winning ticket. She plans to give a portion of her winnings to her grandmother and the remainder will go toward her student loans. The winning ticket was purchased at Gilmore's 411 North Broadway, Rumford.
