Two $30,000 Instant Ticket Winners
$10,000 Winning PowerBall® Ticket Sold; $15,000 Daily Numbers Winner
A gentleman from Cranston has cashed in a winning $30,000 "Ca$htastic" Instant Ticket. He was heading right to the bank after leaving Rhode Island Lottery Headquarters. He purchased the ticket at Pontiac Mart, 527 Pontiac Ave., Cranston. Non-winning "Ca$htastic" Instant Tickets can be entered on the Rhode Island Lottery's website via the Rhody Replay program. Players must first join or log in to the VIP Club, a free membership, to access Rhody Replay.
Keisha Browner, of Newport, also won $30,000 on the "Diamonds & Gold" Instant Ticket. She plans to pay bills and might buy her son a car. She purchased the ticket at Newport Mart, 52 East Main Rd., Middletown.
Saturday's PowerBall® drawing resulted in a $10,000 winning ticket sold. 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 PowerPlay® feature for an additional dollar on the wager. If the player had opted for Power Play®, the $10,000 prize would have been multiplied by 2, Saturday's Power Play® number, to equal $20,000. The winning ticket was purchased at JR Sav On Liquors, 350 Benefit St., Pawtucket. The $10,000 prize has yet to be claimed.
Wednesday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $171 million.
A Providence man won $15,000 playing Daily Number 1 0 0 8, from the January 22 draw. The numbers played were for his grandson's birthday, which was in October 2008. He wagered $.50 on one (1) combination ticket and $1.00 on two (2) straight bets at Prime Drug, 613 Cranston St., Cranston.
