Rhode Island Lottery Instant Ticket WinnerThe Cumberland man who won $100,000 on the World Series of Poker was Frederick Lajoie.  His luck has changed a lot in the last week since being in the hospital for heart problems just days earlier.  He plans to treat his grandson to a vacation with some of the winnings.

This week is off to another great start with a $10,000 PowerBall® winning ticket sold for Saturday's drawing.  The ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number for the standard payout of $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 five, Saturday’s Power Play® number, to equal $50,000.  Ammouri's Gas & Food Mart on Main Street in Warren sold the winning ticket, which has not yet been claimed.
