Two $50,000 Winning PowerBall® Tickets Sold in RI
Winner receives $10,000 Winning Instant Ticket as a Birthday Gift
Two $50,000 winning PowerBall® tickets were sold in Rhode Island for last night's drawing. The winning tickets matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number to win $50,000 each. Neither player added the PowerPlay® feature for an extra dollar. If the tickets had PowerPlay®, the $50,000 prizes would have been multiplied by 3, last night's PowerPlay® number, to equal $150,000 each. Total Market, 970 Willett Ave., Riverside, sold one of the winning tickets and Stop & Shop, 70 Mendon Rd., Cumberland sold the other. Both prizes remain unclaimed.
Saturday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $205 million!
In addition, a man from Seekonk, Massachusetts, claimed a $10,000 $2 "7" Instant Ticket top prize on his birthday! A few hours prior to claiming the prize, his friend gave him the Instant Ticket as part of a birthday gift. He does not have any immediate plans for the money won. However, he is vacationing in Florida next month, so he said he will likely use some of his win to pay for vacation amenities. The winning ticket was purchased at Sam's Food Store, 981 Manton Ave., Providence.
