Tiverton Man Learns of $50,000 PowerBall® Win on Christmas Eve
Warwick woman wins $10,000 Daily Numbers on Christmas Day
A Tiverton man claimed a winning $50,000 PowerBall® ticket from the December 21st drawing. The winner learned he won when he went to the store to play PowerBall® for the Christmas Eve draw. When he checked the ticket, the retailer exclaimed, “It’s you…You’re the winner!” The winner matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number to win $50,000. However, he did not purchase the PowerPlay® feature, which would have multiplied the prize by 5, the PowerPlay® number for the December 21st draw, to win $250,000 instead of $50,000. The winner said he’ll use the winnings to make everyday life easier. Step by Step Mart, 429 Main Rd., Tiverton, sold the winning ticket.
Wednesday’s estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $60 million.
Additionally, a Warwick woman claimed a $10,000 Daily Numbers win from the December 25th Evening draw. She wagered $1 on two four-digit straight bets and matched all four numbers in the exact order drawn to win $5,000 on each ticket. She played her late husband’s birthday and believes it’s a Christmas gift from him. The winner plans to save her money. The winning ticket was purchased at Dan’s Convenience Store, 2699 Post Rd., Warwick.
