Two $50,000 Prizes Claimed Today
A Pawtucket man claimed the $50,000 winning Powerball® ticket from the February 14th draw. His winning ticket matched four numbers and the Powerball® number to win $50,000. Had he purchased the PowerPlay® feature, his prize would have been multiplied by 2, the PowerPlay® number for that draw, to win $100,000. He plans to help his nephew pay for his college tuition. Stateline Wine & Spirits, 880 Central Ave., Pawtucket, sold the winning ticket.
Saturday's estimated Powerball® jackpot is $246 million.
In addition, a woman from Barrington claimed a $50,000 "Emerald 7's" Instant Ticket top prize. She is still in shock about her win and does not have any immediate plans for her winnings. Bristol Food Mart, 259 Wood St., Bristol, sold the winning ticket.
