Extraordinarily High Daily Numbers Payout
$10,000 PowerBall® Winner
Last night’s Daily Numbers drawing paid out a remarkable 300%. The Rhode Island Lottery awarded $171,414 worth of prizes, while taking in $56,966 in net sales. There were a total of 41 tickets sold with a prize value of $2,604 and 13 tickets with a prize of $2,500.
The popular winning combination drawn was 1 9 5 0.
The Daily Numbers drawings take place Monday through Saturday at 6:59 pm and at 6:29 pm on Sundays, live on WPRI-TV.
There was also a $10,000 PowerBall® winning ticket sold for Saturday night’s drawing. The ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number. The standard payout for this type of win is $10,000. The winner did not purchase the Power Play® feature for an additional dollar on the wager. If the player had opted for Power Play®, the $10,000 prize would have been multiplied by 5, Saturday’s Power Play® number, to equal $50,000.
The winning ticket was purchased at Reservoir Marketplace at 579 Reservoir Ave., Cranston. The $10,000 prize has yet to be claimed.Wednesday’s estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $25 million.
