Two Instant Ticket Top Prizes Claimed
Two Big Daily Numbers Wins
A Cumberland woman claimed a $75,000 top prize playing the Lottery's $5 "Baseball" Instant Ticket. She plans to purchase a new car with her winnings. The Cumberland Spot, 1152 Mendon Rd., Cumberland, sold the winning ticket.
A Cranston woman claimed an $8,888 "Quick 8's" Instant Ticket top prize. She purchased the ticket at Shaw's, 8 Chapel View Blvd., Cranston, after she finished grocery shopping. She is still in disbelief about her win, so she does not have any immediate plans for her winnings.
A North Providence man won $15,000 playing the Daily Numbers game. Two of his winning tickets were a result of the May 29, 2016, Evening draw and the third winning ticket was a result of the November 13, 2016, Evening draw. He wagered $1 on each of the three four-digit straight bets, and matched all four digits in the exact order they were drawn to win $5,000 on each, equaling $15,000. He plans to use his winnings to pay bills. Colbea, 1275 Mineral Spring Ave., North Providence, sold the winning ticket.
A Cranston woman won $10,000 playing the Daily Numbers game. One of her winning tickets was from the July 3, 2016, Evening draw, and the other winning ticket was from the August 8, 2016, Midday draw. On both of the winning tickets, she wagered $1 on a four-digit straight bet. She matched all four digits in the exact order they were drawn to win $5,000 on each ticket, equaling $10,000. The numbers she played represent family members' birthdates. Darlington Liquors, 346 Armistice Blvd., Pawtucket, sold the winning tickets.
