Big Winners on PowerBall®, Daily Numbers and Instant Tickets
Rhode Islanders have had some big lottery wins recently.
There was a $10,000 winning PowerBall® ticket sold in Rhode Island for Saturday night’s drawing. The ticket matched the first four numbers, but not the PowerBall® number, for the standard payout of $10,000. The player did not purchase the PowerPlay® feature for an additional dollar on the wager. If he had, the $10,000 prize would have been multiplied by five, Saturday’s PowerPlay® number, to equal $50,000.
The winning ticket was purchased from People’s Liquor Warehouse on Main Street in Ashaway, and is still unclaimed. Wednesday’s estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $96 million.
The November 2nd drawing brought in a lot of Daily Numbers winners with the winning number combination of 1 2 1 4. A Johnston woman claimed multiple tickets of straight and box bets to win a combined total of $34,988. She bought her tickets from AT Casali Liquors in Cranston and Stop & Shop on 11 Commerce Way in Johnston.
Then, Paul Lemieux from Providence (photo attached) cashed in 2 separate $2 combo wagers, which came to $10,816. Cumberland Farms at 921 Cranston St., Cranston, sold him both winning tickets.
Lastly, a Johnston woman claimed $10,000 after winning on two separate $1 straight bets. Those tickets were sold from Sun Food Mart on Hartford Avenue in Johnston.
Instant GamesRosa Botelho, Manville, (photo attached) came in with her son and daughter to claim a $10,000 prize from the Baseball Instant Game. She bought the ticket from Manville Market at 6 Main St., Manville, and plans pay bills with most of her winnings. In addition, her daughter’s birthday falls on Thanksgiving, so she’ll use the money to get her a nice present.
