Rhode Island Lottery Winner Heads to Vegas for the World Series of Poker® Tournament
The winner of the second chance drawing for the World Series of Poker® Instant Game has claimed his prize. Richard Marsoobian of North Providence will be heading to Las Vegas with $10,000 for a seat at the 2010 World Series of Poker® Main Event on July 5th. The package also includes round-trip airline transportation (for two), a 4 night stay, and $500 spending money! Richard is bringing his wife to cheer him on. He has been playing poker for approximately 15-20 years at his house with friends and occasionally at Foxwoods. In the past, he has joked with his family that someday he would be going to the tournament, but never in his wildest dreams did he think it would actually happen. "I just don`t want to be the first one out!" he exclaimed while at the Lottery headquarters.
The ten dollar World Series of Poker® Instant Game launched on December 7, 2009 and offered players the option to enter any non-winning tickets for a second chance to win seats at The 2010 World Series of Poker® Main Event (a $10,000 No-Limit Hold`em Championship). Last year, the event started with 6,494 buy-ins and ended with 648 payouts totaling $60,043,650. The winner of the tournament walked away with $8,546,453!
Marsoobian said he is nervous and excited to go, and hopes that he makes it to the end to represent Rhode Island at the final table!
Both second chance drawings for the World Series of Poker® Instant Game have concluded. There are still 2 unclaimed $100,000 instant win prizes for this game. For more information about other Rhode Island Lottery second chance drawings, click here.

Million Dollar Raffle Game Winning Ticket Claimed
January 2, 2009 - The $1,000,000 top prize winner for the Rhode Island Lottery`s Million Dollar Raffle Game was claimed this morning by Cherie Faria and her family (photo attached). The winning number was 1 0 4 6 0 9 sold from Stop & Shop at 200 Atwood Ave., Cranston.
Cherie said she bought her ticket on New Year`s Eve after cashing in her check and doing her grocery shopping. On New Year`s day, they hadn`t looked up the winning number yet, so she and her husband joked throughout the day that they might be a million dollars richer. Cherie`s husband, Michael, checked their ticket later that night when they were having dinner at Wright`s Chicken Farm and Cherie said she spent a half hour in the parking lot crying and laughing after her husband told her. The couple came in to the Lottery with two of their sons, while the oldest one was still asleep at home. Their oldest son, Michael Jr., goes to Rhode Island College, and her middle son, Justin, goes to the Community College of Rhode Island. Their youngest son, Ryan, is still in high school, but Cherie said now he can go to college anywhere he`d like.
After winning the million dollars, Cherie said she`s already called the daycare, where she was employed part time, to tell them she would not be working anymore. Her husband, Michael, will continue to work at Gem Plumbing. The family also plans to visit Cherie`s parents in Florida, now that they can afford the trip.
In addition to the million dollar top prize, there were multiple prizes of $10,000 and $1,000.
