Irene Influences How 1 Winner Will Spend a $15,000 Win - $10,000 PowerBallŪ Winner in Rhode Island

Irene Influences How 1 Winner Will Spend a $15,000 Win
$10,000 PowerBall® Winner in Rhode Island

After 7 days without power and water when Tropical Storm Irene touched down in Rhode Island, a Coventry woman has no question of what she’ll spend her windfall on.  She won $15,000 playing the “Bank On It” Instant Ticket and plans to use the winnings to buy a generator to power the whole house so she can be prepared for the next storm.  She’s also planning on giving her mom a little gift because she was the only family member that believed her when she said she won.  In fact, even after looking at the ticket, her husband still doubted she actually won a prize that large.

Last night’s PowerBall® drawing yielded a $10,000 winning ticket sold in Rhode Island.  The ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number for last 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 four, last night’s Power Play® number, to equal $40,000.

The winning ticket was purchased from Cumberland Farms at 2812 Pawtucket Ave., East Providence.  The $10,000 prize has yet to be claimed. 

Saturday’s estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $30 million.
