Woman Wins Twice in One Week on the Numbers Game
$100,000 Instant Win
A woman from Hope, RI, won $20,000 on the Numbers Midday drawing on Wednesday, just one day after claiming $5,000 from Monday's Evening Numbers drawing. She said she's been playing her children's birthdays for a number of years. On Monday, one of those numbers, 1 2 9 5, came up, resulting in a $5,000 win for her $1 4-digit straight bet. Then on Wednesday, 1 3 9 2 was drawn, and she won $20,000 since she played four $1 4-digit straight bets. She has one other child whose birthday she plays as well, so she joked with Lottery staff that she could be back again this week. Alpine Wine, 1 Starline Way, Cranston, sold her winning ticket for Monday's drawing; and Stop & Shop, 200 Atwood Ave., Cranston, sold the winning tickets for Wednesday's drawing.
A Cranston, RI, man claimed a $100,000 "Cash Club" Instant Ticket top prize. He said he plans to use the money to pay off the remainder of his mortgage and then invest the rest for his young daughters. Shop N' Go, 237 Greenville Ave., Johnston, sold the winning ticket.
