Three $50,000 Winning Powerball® Tickets Sold in Rhode Island
Although the single winning $758.7 million Powerball® ticket was sold in Chicopee, Massachusetts, Rhode Island did have three $50,000 Powerball® wins from last night's draw. The winning tickets were sold by Muldowney's Pub, 121 Empire St., Providence; JR Mart, 332 Bullocks Point, East Providence; and Li'l General, 601 Winter St., Woonsocket. All three winning tickets matched four numbers and the Powerball® number to win $50,000. None of the winners purchased the PowerPlay® feature, which would have multiplied their prizes by 4, the PowerPlay® number for last night's draw, to win $200,000 instead of $50,000. The prizes have yet to be claimed.
Saturday's estimated Powerball® jackpot is $40 million.
