RI Lottery winnerJanuary 21, 2015

$100,000, $35,000 & $20,000 Instant Wins

Kenneth Pelletier of Westport, Mass., said he doesn't typically play Instant Games, but while out to eat at Barcello's Family Restaurant in Tiverton on Saturday, he kept seeing the Instant Ticket vending machine whenever his father-in-law would shift in his seat.  The "$100,000 Cash" ticket caught his eye each time, so he decided to buy a ticket and scratch it while at the Stafford Road restaurant.  That ticket revealed a $100,000 win!  Pelletier said he called his wife immediately to tell her he won, but was so calm she didn't believe him.  To celebrate the win, he bought a round of drinks for everyone in the bar, but the big plan for the money will be to build an addition on their house so their two children can each have their own bedrooms.

First time Lottery player Brendan Laprey of Middletown received Instant Tickets from his boss for Christmas.  He won $6 and decided to purchase the Price is Right® Instant Ticket with his winnings.  The only other time he's purchased any Instant Games were for Christmas presents; but never gets them for himself. He was ecstatic when his ticket revealed a $35,000 win and plans to buy a new car and put the rest in savings.  He purchased the winning ticket at Melville Xtra Mart, 1568 West Main Rd., Portsmouth.

Lastly, there was a $20,000 winner from the $2 40th Anniversary Instant Ticket.  Glenn Parenteau from West Warwick said it was his first time playing that particular game, which he bought at Cumberland Farms on Washington Street in West Warwick. He brought the ticket home and scratched it while sitting at the kitchen table.  When he realized he won $20,000, he banged his fists on the table and started jumping up and down with excitement. He said he will use the money to take his children shopping, buy something special for his wife, and do some advanced rent payments.
