Last Evening’s Numbers Draw Paid Out 245%
$40,000 in Prizes Claimed So Far Today
Last evening’s Daily Numbers drawing paid out 245% with the winning number 9 9 9 9. The Rhode Island Lottery paid out $118,625 worth of prizes, and received $48,860 in net sales.
A Warwick man was eager to claim his $10,000 Daily Numbers win from last evening’s draw. He wagered $2.00 on a 4-digit straight bet and matched all 4-digits in the exact order to win $10,000. He plans to take a vacation with his wife to visit Pennsylvania. The winning ticket was sold at Lakewood Liquors, 774 Warwick Ave., Warwick.
In addition, a man from Coventry claimed $20,000 from his Daily Numbers win. He wagered $1.00 on 40 3-digit straight bets playing the same number combination for last night's drawing. He matched all 3 digits to win $500 on each, equaling $20,000. He said he normally plays a quick pick but the number “9” kept coming to mind, so he decided to play it. He does not have any immediate plans for the money won. The winning tickets were sold at Sam’s Food Store, 119 East Main St., West Warwick.
A Harrisville man won $10,000 playing two $1 4-digit straight bets for last night's drawing. He said his wife has been playing those numbers for a few months and he teased her that they'd never come up, so he was surprised when they did. They plan to put the money towards some home-improvement projects they had started and also use a little to treat themselves. Stateline Wine, 880 Central Ave., Pawtucket, sold the winning ticket.
Daily Numbers drawings take place Monday through Saturday at1:30 pm and 6:59 pm and at 1:30pm and 6:29 pm on Sundays.
