Two Big Winners Hope to Hit Tonight's PowerBall® Jackpot
A woman from Hope claimed the winning $50,000 PowerBall® ticket from the draw on Saturday, January 2nd. Her winning ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number to win $50,000. She plans to pay a few bills first and then start a trust fund for her two children with the remainder. She purchased another PowerBall® ticket for tonight's drawing in hopes that her luck continues. Cumberland Farms, 2293 New London Turnpike, Coventry, sold the winning ticket.
A West Warwick man claimed a $100,000 "100x the Money" Instant Ticket prize. He is overjoyed about his win, but does not have any immediate plans. He too has high hopes that his luck will continue and he said he will definitely be purchasing a few PowerBall® tickets for tonight's $1.5 Billion jackpot drawing. He purchased the winning ticket at Cumberland Farms, 275 Legris Ave., West Warwick.
