Two $15,000 Instant Ticket Winners
$15,000 was a popular prize won by Rhode Island Lottery Instant Ticket players.
An 81-year-old Central Falls woman was in disbelief as she claimed her $15,000 prize. She may not enjoy doing Crossword Puzzles, but she does like to play the Crossword Instant Game – which is no surprise after the $15,000 win! The winner was still in shock when she cashed in her ticket, so she had no plans yet for the money, other than paying some bills. Tedeschi Food Shops, Inc. on Broad Street in Central Falls was the lucky retailer that sold the winning ticket.
A Cranston man also won $15,000. His big win was on the Gold & Green Instant Ticket that he bought at the Rite Aid on Reservoir Ave. in Cranston. This winner has been holding onto the winning ticket since February since he didn’t have any free time to claim the prize until now.
