$10,000 PowerBall® Winning Streak
For the second drawing in a row, Rhode Island sold a $10,000 winning PowerBall® ticket. The ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number for Saturday night’s drawing. The standard payout for this type of win is $10,000. The winner did not purchase the Power Play® feature for an additional dollar on the wager. If the player had opted for Power Play®, the $10,000 prize would have been multiplied by two, Saturday night’s Power Play® number, to equal $20,000.
The winning ticket was purchased from C-Town Supermarket on 300 Barton Street in Pawtucket. The $10,000 prize has yet to be claimed. Last Wednesday’s $10,000 winning ticket also remains unclaimed.
Wednesday’s estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $47 million.
