$10,000 Mega Millions® &
Two $10,000 PowerBall® Tickets Claimed
The $10,000 winning Mega Millions® ticket from the drawing on March 8, was just claimed by a gentleman from Tiverton. The winning ticket was purchased at North Tiverton News on Main Road in Tiverton. He has been trying to decide which charity to donate some of his winnings to. He knows he wants to donate to a charity that involves children, and typically donates to St. Jude’s. This time, he might donate to a local charity. He has never won this much before and he and his wife will also use some of his winnings to go to New York or Florida for a long weekend.
Additionally, two $10,000 PowerBall® Tickets have been claimed. The $10,000 PowerBall® ticket from Wednesday’s drawing was claimed by a gentleman from Coventry. He purchased the ticket at Cumberland Farms on Nooseneck Hill Road in Coventry. He plans on using the money towards a trip to Florida.
Another $10,000 PowerBall® Ticket was claimed by John Whitney of Bristol from the May 29 drawing. The winning ticket was purchased from Viola’s Liquor Store in Bristol. He plans on using the money towards a safari in Africa.
Tonight’s estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $201 million. Saturday’s estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $85 million. Why choose? Play Both!
