A Cranston man claimed a $20,000 winning "1,000,000 Scratch" instant ticket. The man explained that he was still in shock and had yet to tell anyone about his win. However, he plans to tell his wife who is a nurse as soon as she gets off her shift. He revealed that he took the day off of work to close on his first home, stopped at a local retailer to pass the time and purchased the winning ticket. With a sense of relief in his voice, he stated, "The costs associated with my new home alongside the trip my wife and I have planned to go to Disney in a few months had been weighing on me financially." He considers his instant ticket purchase a blessing. He bought the winning ticket at Colbea Enterprises LLC, 1036 Reservoir Ave., Cranston.

A North Providence man claimed a $40,000 winning "50X The Money" instant ticket. The man explained that he buys an instant ticket weekly, but has only won small amounts in the past. Therefore, he initially thought he only won $40.00. He smiled and stated, "Then I looked again and realized I had to add a few zeros to that number."He has already told his wife and sons, who will be accompanying him on a cruise to the Caribbean next month. He plans to use some of the money wonon their trip, but save the majority of it. He bought the winning ticket at Pick N Pay Food Mart, 94 George Waterman Rd.,Johnston.
