$1,000,000 & $10,000 PowerBall® Winners in Rhode Island
Just one day after a $1,000,000 Mega Millions® prize was won, last night's PowerBall® drawing also resulted in $1,000,000 and $10,000 prizes in Rhode Island!
The $1,000,000 ticket matched five numbers but not the PowerBall® number, for the standard payout of $1,000,000. However, if the Power Play® feature was added for an extra dollar, the prize would have increased to $2,000,000.
The $1,000,000 winning ticket was purchased at Luk Oil, 3333 South County Trail, East Greenwich. The prize has yet to be claimed.
The $10,000 PowerBall® 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 been increased to $40,000.
The $10,000 winning ticket was purchased at Chelo's, 505 Silver Spring Street, Providence. The prize has yet to be claimed.
Saturday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $95 million.
