Mega Millions Jackpot is on a Roll
$10,000 Mega Millions Winner in Rhode Island
The Mega Millions® jackpot is rolling again with the jackpot now at $151 Million. Last night’s drawing made one lucky Rhode Islander $10,000 richer. The ticket was purchased at North Tiverton News on Main Road in Tiverton and has yet to be claimed.
Additionally, both PowerBall® tickets from last Saturday’s drawing have been claimed. A Cranston man claimed his $20,000 PowerBall® PowerPlay® Ticket he purchased at I.M. Gan Discount Liquors in Warwick. He’s not sure what he’ll do with his winnings, but knows for sure he’ll have to continue to work. The $10,000 PowerBall® Ticket was claimed by a gentleman from Bristol. He purchased his ticket at the Hess Express in Middletown on his way to rehab at Newport Hospital.
Finally, a West Warwick man came into the Lottery Headquarters with a $10,000 Triple Payout Instant Ticket. The ticket was purchased at Post Road Sunoco on Post Road in Warwick.
Tonight’s estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $40 million and Friday’s estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $151 million.
