Winners, Winners, Winners
The week has started off with some big wins for Rhode Island Lottery players.
A Cranston woman cashed in a $56,364 winning Wild Money ticket from the November 3 drawing. She checked her numbers yesterday morning first by looking at the website, then calling the Lottery to confirm. She then repeated those steps a few more times and had her friend do the same because she couldn't believe she won. It wasn't until she received her check that the reality sunk in and the winner began to cry tears of joy. She plans to use the money to pay bills and is thinking about buying a new computer and an iPhone. She also said she's thankful she'll be able to breathe easy this holiday season. The Cumberland Farms at 705 Tiogue Ave., Coventry, sold the winning ticket.
A very happy Johnston woman came in with her husband to claim the $40,000 winning PowerBall® ticket from the November 2 drawing. She just bought a new Harley-Davidson® motorcycle and will also be using some of the money to go on a honeymoon. The ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number, for a $10,000 prize. She selected the Power Play® feature for an additional dollar on the wager so the $10,000 prize was multiplied by four, the Power Play® number for that draw, to equal $40,000. The winner purchased the ticket from Shop N Go at 235 Greenville Ave., Johnston.
The Black Diamonds Instant Game brought in another $20,000 winner. A Johnston woman came in with that winning ticket, leaving 13 more $20,000 prizes left to be won in that popular game. She bought the ticket from Plainfield Pike Leasing at 1889 Plainfield Pike, Johnston.
The winning number combination 1 9 3 5 was a popular number for Saturday night's drawing paying out more than 154%. The Rhode Island Lottery awarded $111,673 worth of prizes with 24 tickets sold having a prize value of $2,604 and 8 tickets with a prize of $2,500. A North Providence woman was one of the lucky winners that day. She cashed in 7 tickets to win a grand total of $17,812. Mineral Spring Liquor at 1005 Mineral Spring Ave., North Providence, sold all 7 tickets.
