$35,000 Instant Ticket Winner Westbound
$50,000 Winning PowerBall® Ticket Sold in Rhode Island
A Woonsocket man claimed a $35,000 "Wheel of Fortune" Instant Ticket top prize. He plans to use the money won to visit his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He said it has been a few years since he last saw them, and he has new great grandchildren he has yet to meet. He purchased the winning ticket at Convenience Store, 260 Logee St., Woonsocket.
In addition, a $50,000 PowerBall® ticket was sold in Rhode Island for Saturday night's drawing. The winning ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number to win $50,000. The winner did not purchase the PowerPlay® feature, which would have multiplied the prize by 2, the PowerPlay® number for Saturday night's draw, to win $100,000. 7-Eleven, 535 Reservoir Ave., Cranston, sold the winning ticket, which has yet to be claimed.
Wednesday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $222 million.
