Two Big Weekend Wins
A woman from Pawtucket claimed a $10,000 "Cash Windfall" Instant Ticket prize. She was at Broadway Market, 399 Broadway, Pawtucket, when she received $2.00 in change from the store clerk. She decided to use that change to buy a $2.00 Instant Ticket, which resulted in a $10,000 win! She said she is still in shock and does not have any immediate plans for the money won.
A Providence man claimed a $10,208 Daily Numbers win from Saturday's midday draw. He wagered $0.50 on two 4-digit straight bets and $0.50 on two combo bets. He matched all four digits in the exact order drawn to win $2,500 on both straight bets, plus $2,604 for each combo bet, to equal $10,208. He said he plans to put his win in the bank. Anthony's Drug Store, 219 Manton Ave., Providence, sold the winning tickets.
