PROVIDENCE MAN CLAIMS $1 Million WINNING powerball® ticket
Providence woman wins $35,000 instantly
A Providence man claimed the $1 million winning PowerBall® ticket sold in Rhode Island for Saturday night's draw. His winning ticket matched all five numbers, but not the PowerBall® number, to win the standard prize payout of $1,000,000. He did not purchase the PowerPlay® feature. If he had, his prize would have been increased to $2,000,000. He said he plans to spend his winnings wisely. Sunrise Market, 1222 Smith St., Providence, sold the winning ticket.
Wednesday's estimated Powerball® jackpot is $193 million.
In addition, a Providence woman claimed a $35,000 "Happy Holidays" Instant Ticket top prize. She said she is still in shock, and does not have any immediate plans for her winnings. She purchased the winning ticket at Sam's Food Store, 28 Hartford Ave., Providence.
