$10,000 Winning PowerBall® Ticket Claimed
A woman from Providence purchased a PowerBall® Quick Pick for the February 2 drawing as a gift for her co-worker. When her co-worker discovered that it was a $10,000 winning ticket, he or she re-gifted it back to her to keep!
She humbly claimed the $10,000 prize this morning and plans to put a new roof on her house and also share some with her co-worker.
The ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number, for a standard payout of $10,000. The winner did not purchase the Power Play® feature for an additional dollar on the wager. If she had, the $10,000 prize would have increased to $40,000.
Saturday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $80 million.
