A woman moving from Pennsylvania to Massachusetts won $20,000 playing the "$1,000,000 Scratch" Instant Game. While staying with her daughter in Rhode Island in the interim she decided to buy an Instant Ticket. She said her win must have been beginner's luck since it was her first time buying a Rhode Island Lottery ticket. With new appliances and furniture being delivered tomorrow, she said the winnings will go towards those new items.
