Retailer Sells 2 $10,000 Prizes in 10 Days
The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority has sold another $10,000 winning ticket. This time it was for last night’s PowerBall® drawing, but just ten days ago, a $10,000 winning Mega Millions® ticket was sold from the same location.
Last night’s winning 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 3, last night’s Power Play® number, to equal $30,000.Saturday’s estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $60 million and tomorrow’s estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $40 million.
