So, he visited a Lottery retailer.  The clerk told him he would need to claim his prize at the Lottery Headquarters, which is where he learned, to his surprise, that he had won $75,000! He is overwhelmed with joy and plans to use some of the money to check something off his bucket list starting with a trip to Aruba. A & B Mart, 951 Pontiac Ave., Cranston, sold the winning ticket.
