New Rhode Island Millionaire! - Plus 1 $20,000 & 2 $10,000 PowerBallŪ Winning Tickets

August 23, 2010

$1 Million PowerBall winnerNew Rhode Island Millionaire!
Plus 1 $20,000 & 2 $10,000 PowerBall® Winning Tickets

Rhode Island has a new millionaire after Saturday night’s $79 million PowerBall® jackpot drawing.  The Coventry man didn’t hit the big jackpot but did win $1,000,000.  He used birthdates and his anniversary date to pick the winning numbers.  Plus, for just $1 extra, he added the Power Play® feature to the base wager, which automatically multiplied the $200,000 prize by five to equal $1,000,000.  Coventry Xtra Mart., 851 Tiogue Ave., Coventry, sold the winning $1,000,000 ticket.

This wasn’t the winner’s first time winning big by playing PowerPlay®.  In 2006, he cashed in a $30,000 winning PowerBall® PowerPlay® ticket.  The winner said his wife’s been sick for quite some time, so the money will go towards getting the help he needs to care for her.

There were three other winners in Saturday night’s drawing as well.  Each of the three winning tickets matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number for the standard payout of $10,000.  One of the players opted for the Power Play® feature, so when the 2 multiplier came up, his $10,000 prize turned into $20,000. None of these prizes have been claimed.  Below is the list of retailers selling the winning tickets:


Xtra Mart
830 High Street


Eastside Mart
422 Lloyd Avenue


Smith St. Shell
1525 Smith Street
North Providence

Wednesday’s estimated PowerBall® jackpot is at $20 million, and Tuesday’s estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is at $115 million.
