Hobby Leads to a $10,629 Win
A camping hobby paid off for Jennie Lippe (see photo) of Pawtucket who came to the Lottery with her husband to pick up her winnings. For years, the couple camped all over the East Coast and Jennie has been playing the registration number of their recreational vehicle, 7 3 3 4, which paid out big for them in last night’s drawing. Jennie bought two Daily Numbers tickets with that number from different retailers. Gulf Express on East Avenue in Pawtucket sold a ticket worth $5,421 and Tavares News on High Street in Pawtucket sold the $5,208 winning ticket. The couple was heading straight to the bank with their check so they could send some money to their 17-year-old granddaughter.
