$10,000 PowerBall® Winner in Rhode Island
The PowerBall® jackpot jumped to $240 million, or a lump sum payment of $159.7 million, after no one matched all five numbers and the PowerBall® number in Saturday night's drawing.
One Rhode Island Lottery ticket did win $10,000 in Saturday night's draw. The ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number winning 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 increased to $40,000.
The winning ticket was purchased from Cindy's Diner at 46 Hartford Ave., North Scituate. The $10,000 prize has yet to be claimed.
