Three $50,000 Winning Powerball® Tickets for Saturday’s Draw

May 21, 2018

Three $50,000 Winning Powerball® Tickets for Saturday’s Draw
$24,000 Wild Money Jackpot Winner

Though the $315,300,000 Powerball® jackpot was hit in New Jersey, there were three $50,000 Powerball® wins in Rhode Island for Saturday’s draw. The winning tickets matched four numbers and the Powerball® number to win $50,000. Had the winners purchased the PowerPlay® feature, their prizes would have been multiplied by 3, the PowerPlay® number for that draw, to each win $150,000. The winning tickets were sold at Willett Farms,185 Willett Ave., Riverside; Chapel Pharmacy, 2081 Diamond Hill Rd., Cumberland; and Borderline Liquors,1520 Newport Ave., Pawtucket. These prizes have not yet been claimed.

Wednesday’s estimated Powerball® jackpot is $40 million.

In addition, a Middletown man cashed in a winning $24,000 Wild Money ticket from the May 17th draw. The winner told Lottery staff that he was watching baseball and changed the channel to watch the Wild Money drawing. He wrote down the winning numbers and thought he won $50. However, when he realized he matched all of the winning numbers, he said he went “numb”. The winner plans to use the winnings to take care of some bills. Cumberland Farms, 94 Aquidneck Ave., Middletown, sold the winning ticket.
