Two $50,000 Powerball® Tickets Sold in R.I. for Last Night's Draw
Estimated Powerball® Jackpot is $510 Million
Two $50,000 winning Powerball® tickets were sold in Rhode Island for last night's draw. One of the winning tickets was sold at Phred's Drug, 1300 Oaklawn Ave., Cranston, and the other winning ticket was sold at Kingstown Mobil, 6228 Post Rd., North Kingstown. Both winning tickets matched four numbers and the Powerball® number to win $50,000. Neither winner purchased the PowerPlay® feature, which would have multiplied their prizes by 3, the PowerPlay® number for last night's draw, to win $150,000 instead of $50,000. The prizes have yet to be claimed.
Saturday's estimated Powerball® jackpot is $510 million, the 5th largest Powerball® jackpot. Saturday's drawing will be the 20th draw since the Powerball® jackpot was last hit on June 10 in California.
