$50,000 Powerball® Ticket Sold in Rhode Island
Two Instant Ticket Winners
Though the $447.8 million Powerball® jackpot was won in California, Rhode Island sold a $50,000 winning Powerball® ticket from Saturday's night's draw. 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 instead of $50,000. The prize has yet to be claimed. J D Convenience, 202 Thames St., Newport, sold the winning ticket.
A Providence man claimed a $35,000 "Hold 'Em Poker" Instant Ticket top prize. He does not have any immediate plans for his winnings. He purchased the winning ticket at Ocean State Market, 341 Dyer Ave., Cranston.
An Exeter man claimed a $10,000 "Maximum Payout" Instant Ticket prize. He plans to pay bills with his winnings. He purchased the winning ticket at Exeter, Variety Store, 250C South County Trail, Exeter.
