Newport Woman Claims $50,000 Instant Ticket Prize
Little Compton Man Wins $10,000 on a Mega Millions® Ticket
A Newport woman claimed a $50,000 “Super Crossword” Instant Ticket prize. She initially thought she won $2,000, until Lottery staff validated the ticket and informed her that the ticket was actually a $50,000 winner! Since the winner hadn’t realized how much she won, she hadn’t begun to make plans for the money, but shared that she may buy a new vehicle. Newport Mart, 52 East Main Rd., Middletown, sold the winning ticket. Two $50,000 top prizes remain unclaimed for the “Super Crossword” Instant Game.
A man from Little Compton claimed a $10,000 winning Mega Millions® ticket from the June 15th draw. His winning ticket matched four numbers and the Mega Ball to win the standard prize of $10,000. Had he purchased the Megaplier® feature for an additional dollar on his wager, his prize would have been multiplied by 2, the Megaplier® number for that draw, increasing his prize to $20,000. He plans to give some of his winnings to his family members and use the remainder to begin renovating his kitchen. Elaine's Country Store, 1204 Fish Road, Tiverton, sold the winning ticket.
Tonight’s estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $192 million.
