Lucky Rhode Island Winners
Joan Williams of Johnston decided to purchase the Rhode Island Lottery Instant Ticket “Pinball Wizard” at Convenience Plus on Atwood Avenue in Johnston. She rarely plays, but was certainly glad she did with her $100,000 Instant win! She plans to share her winnings with her many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Suzanne Lima St. Sauveur of Narragansett is thrilled with her $40,000 win from the Rhode Island Lottery Instant Ticket “$40,000 Cash”. She plans to pay off her car and all of her bills so she can be “bill-free” for the first time in her life! The Stop & Shop at 900 Tiogue Avenue sold the winning ticket.
First time’s the charm for one lucky man from Pascoag. He was at Lower Level Bar & Grill in North Smithfield for his son’s bachelor party where someone taught him how to play Keno. He figured he’d give it a shot and played a 6 spot game and matched all of his numbers. He opted to play Keno Plus which doubled his wager, but that paid off when the 10 multiplier came up turning his $1,200 prize into $12,000! With his son’s wedding happening this weekend and his other son’s wedding coming up in May, there’s no need to guess where that money will be going.
