RI Lottery WinnerColleen Gaulin of Cranston, owner of Café on Midway, was closing for the day and saw there was only one more $2 "40th Anniversary" Instant Ticket in the dispenser.  She bought the ticket so she could refill the dispenser and have it ready for the next day.  When she scratched the ticket, she uncovered the "Star" symbol to win all ten prizes.  Each prize on the ticket was $2,000, making it a $20,000 winner.  She called her husband to surprise him with the news, and he had a surprise of his own, he just bought her a new car.   Gaulin said the money will go towards the new car.  Café on Midway is located at 200 Midway Rd., Cranston.
