Change in Routine Nets $20,000 Win
Beth and Joe Lampron of Rumford claimed a $20,000 winning "$1,000,000 Scratch" Instant Ticket. Joe usually buys just PowerBall® tickets, but he started to mix things up last week, and asked for two $10 Instant Tickets. Then, this week, while he was cooking dinner, he asked Beth to pick up two more $10 Instant Tickets. She went to Town Wine & Spirits, 179 Newport Ave., East Providence, and decided to instead ask for one $20 ticket. At home, she scratched off the first ten numbers, to reveal $1,000 prizes for each number. Joe scratched off the second half of the ticket with the same result. They told Lottery staff that as they totaled up the prizes, "We jumped up and down like Tom Brady at the end of the Superbowl!" They plan to use the money to pay bills, and then spoil their children and dogs.
