Two $50,000 Powerball® Wins
A West Warwick woman claimed a $50,000 Powerball® prize from the December 6th draw. Her winning ticket matched four numbers and the Powerball® number to win $50,000. She did not purchase the PowerPlay® feature, which, if she had, would have multiplied her prize by 2, the PowerPlay® number for that draw, increasing the prize to $100,000. She plans to save her winnings. Stop & Shop, 575 Greenwich Ave., Warwick, sold the winning ticket.
Additionally, a winning $50,000 Powerball® ticket was sold in Rhode Island for last night's draw. That player also did not purchase the PowerPlay® feature, which would have multiplied the prize by 3, the PowerPlay® number for that draw, increasing the prize to $150,000. The prize has yet to be claimed. Oakie's 626 Oakland Beach Ave., Warwick, sold the winning ticket.
Saturday's estimated Powerball® jackpot is $250 million.
