$35,000 Instant Ticket Winner in Rhode Island - $10,000 PowerBallŪ Winning Ticket Sold

March 2, 2012

$35,000 Instant Ticket Winner in Rhode Island
$10,000 PowerBall® Winning Ticket Sold

A young man from Cranston cashed in a winning $35,000 Royal Riches Instant Ticket he purchased from the Cumberland Farms on Reservoir Avenue in Cranston.  He had a dream the night before that he walked into a store, asked for any Instant Ticket, and won. He said that it felt too real, and just had to try his luck. He was shocked when he actually won. He plans on paying off debt and giving the rest to his son.

A $10,000 winning PowerBall® ticket was sold in Rhode Island from Wednesday's drawing.  The ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number.  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 increased to $40,000.

The winning ticket was purchased from Cumberland Farms at 659 Reservoir Avenue in Cranston.  The $10,000 prize has yet to be claimed.

Saturday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $50 million and tonight's estimated Mega Millions jackpot has climbed to $108 million.
