$40,000 PowerBall® PowerPlay® Winner in Rhode Island
The jackpot for last night’s PowerBall® drawing was not hit, so it has climbed to $253 million for Saturday night. The drawing did however make one Rhode Island Lottery player $40,000 richer. The ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number. The standard payout for this type of win is $10,000. However, the winner added the Power Play® feature for an extra dollar which increased the prize to $40,000.
Colbea Enterprises at 457 Benefit St., Providence, sold the winning ticket. The $40,000 prize has yet to be claimed.
