Cranston Man Wins $35,000 One Year After Winning $15,000
$10,000 PowerBall® Winner
Jackey Thompson of Cranston, cashed in a $35,000 winning "Sapphire 5's" Instant Ticket this morning. Last September, he also won $15,000 on the "Rhode Island Lottery Limited" Instant Ticket!
He and his wife were so excited that they tried bringing in the winning ticket to Rhode Island Headquarters on Saturday, but quickly realized it was closed! They were still in shock when they claimed this morning. They definitely plan to enjoy some of it and put the rest towards bills.
Jackey purchased the winning $35,000 Instant Ticket from Pacific Seafood Market Co., 247 Reservoir Ave., Providence. He purchased the $15,000 Instant Ticket from Diamond Fuel, 1353 Park Ave., Cranston.
The $10,000 winning PowerBall® ticket from the August 24 drawing has been claimed by a woman from Warren. She is going to use the money to help her son. She purchased the winning ticket from Willet Ave Xtra Mart, 973 Willet Ave., Riverside.
Wednesday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot has climbed to $245 million.
