Winning Tickets Galore
A Providence man claimed a winning $25,000 Daily Numbers ticket he purchased at Olde Smoke Shoppe at 130 Westminster St., Providence, for the May 20 draw. He wagered $5 on a 4-digit straight bet. His numbers, 3 6 3 8, came up in the exact order he played them. He plans to get some new gardening supplies and a new fence.
Additionally, there was a winning $25,000 Lucky for Life® ticket sold in Rhode Island from last night's drawing. The ticket matched five numbers, but not the Lucky Ball number. The Stop & Shop at 1360 West Main Rd., Middletown, sold the winning ticket. It remains unclaimed.
Finally, Saturday's PowerBall® drawing resulted in a $10,000 ticket sold in Rhode Island. 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 been increased to $40,000. Oroba's Conimicut Variety, 695 West Shore Rd., Warwick, sold the winning ticket, which remains unclaimed.
Wednesday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $40 million.
