Two Top Prize Winners in One Day
Stanley Crum Jr. of Pawtucket claimed a $12,000 "10x the Money" Instant Ticket top prize. He explained that he placed a wager on the Daily Numbers game on his work break and used the $2.00 worth of change he received back to purchase the Instant Ticket. He went back to work and scratched a $12,000 winner! He said during the summer he takes his grandchildren camping, so he plans to use the money to buy a new camper. He purchased the winning ticket at Tavares News, 30 High St., Pawtucket.
Jeffrey Hoyt of Woonsocket claimed a $35,000 top prize from the $5 "7" Instant Ticket. He said he doesn't have any immediate plans besides paying off some bills. He purchased the winning ticket at Sunoco, 634 George Washington Hwy., Lincoln.
