Rhode Island’s PowerBall® Winners
The $10,000 winning ticket from last Wednesday’s PowerBall® drawing was claimed by 18-year-old Catherine Radov of Newport. The ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number. The standard payout for this type of win is $10,000. If she had chosen to play the PowerPlay® option for an additional $1, the $10,000 prize would have been multiplied by 2 to equal $20,000.
This isn’t the first time she won $10,000. Last year, Catherine wrote an essay for a radio sponsored contest on how her school, East Bay Met, needed a fitness program. After her $10,000 PowerBall® win, she now has $20,000 to put towards CCRI, where she was just accepted.
She purchased the winning ticket at Colbea Enterprises on East Main Road in Middletown.
Additionally, a Providence gentleman claimed the $200,000 winning PowerBall® ticket from last Wednesday’s drawing. He plans on using it towards bills and will buy his mother a truck. If he had purchased the PowerPlay® feature for an additional dollar on the wager, his winnings would have been multiplied by five, no matter what PowerPlay® number was drawn, to equal $1,000,000.
He purchased the winning ticket at Gomez Market at 1459 Broad Street in Providence.
There are still unclaimed winning PowerBall® tickets from last Wednesday’s drawing. A $200,000 winning ticket that was purchased at BJ’s Wholesale Club in Coventry and a $10,000 ticket purchased at Dave’s Marketplace on Tower Hill Road in North Kingstown. Then, over the weekend, someone purchased a winning $10,000 PowerBall® ticket at Paul’s Liquor Mart in Cumberland. This winner also has yet to come forward.
This Wednesday’s estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $27 million.
