$20,000 Win in Time for the Holiday Shopping Rush!
A Newport man had 20,000 reasons to smile this morning when he cashed in a $20,000 winning Instant Ticket. During his weekly routine, he bought a "1,000,000 Scratch" Instant Ticket and won $20,000! The winner mentioned to Lottery staff that the most he'd won prior was $500. In his excitement, he said he's going to have "a very good Christmas." He plans to use the money won for holiday shopping. The winning ticket was sold at Fifth Ward Liquor, 695 Thames St., Newport.
As of December 14, 2015, the "$1,000,000 Scratch" Instant Ticket has one (1) $1 million prize and thirteen (13) $20,000 prizes remaining.
