Daily Numbers Win that Was "Meant To Be"
After having dreamt of the numbers 1, 2, 2, 2 a couple of years ago, a Providence woman said she makes a point to always play them for the Rhode Island Lottery's Numbers game. However, she said on December 6, she had to work late and almost missed the cut off to buy tickets for that night's Evening draw, placing her wager with less than two minutes to spare. She played three $1 4-digit straight bets, and two $1 4-digit box bets at Savers Mart #2, 871 Elmwood Ave., Providence. Those numbers came up in the exact order she played them, winning $5,000 on each straight bet and $1,250 on each box bet, for a total win of $17,500. She discovered she won when she got home a little while later, and her mother called and asked if she had seen the winning numbers from that night's drawing. When asked what she plans to do with her winnings, the Providence winner responded that she will do something nice for her mom.
