$100,000 POWERBALL® POWERPLAY® Winner
A Cranston woman claimed the $100,000 PowerBall® PowerPlay® ticket from Saturday night’s drawing. Her ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number, winning $50,000. Because she paid an additional dollar on her wager by opting for the PowerPlay® feature, her prize was multiplied by 2, Saturday night's PowerPlay® number, to win $100,000. The numbers that she played represent her family members’ birthdates. She said she experienced a streak of bad luck last winter, including a fall which restricted her from working for a period of time. Therefore, she plans to use the majority of the money won to pay off accumulated expenses. Eddie’s, 1571 Plainfield Pike, Johnston sold the winning ticket.
