$200,000 & 2 $10,000 PowerBall® Tickets Claimed
The $200,000 and $10,000 winning PowerBall® tickets from Saturday night’s drawing have been claimed. In addition, the $10,000 PowerBall® winner from the August 8 drawing has come forward.
Robert Carr from Wakefield, RI, (photo attached) claimed the $200,000 prize with his wife, who couldn’t believe they really won until Validations handed them their check. They plan to put the money towards bills and then figure out how they’ll spend the rest after that. Colbea Enterprises at 1190 Quaker Ln., Warwick, sold the winning ticket.
The $10,000 prize was claimed by a Cumberland woman who wasn’t sure what she’d use the money for. Her winning ticket was purchased at Pop’s Liquor, 2080 Diamond Hill Rd., Cumberland.
The $200,000 winning ticket matched all five numbers, but not the PowerBall® number. The $10,000 winning ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number. Neither player opted to purchase the PowerPlay® feature for an additional dollar on the wager, which would have multiplied their winnings to equal $1,000,000 and $30,000.
Then, there was an additional $10,000 PowerBall® winner from the August 8 drawing. The winner was from Onset, Mass., and he has been traveling for business so this was the first time he was able to come in. He bought his winning ticket from Crossroads Wine & Spirits on Bulgarmarsh Road in Tiverton.
Tonight’s estimated jackpot is $45 million.
