$20,000 Winner Plans to Share with His Daughter

RI Lottery winnerShani Simone of Saunderstown claimed a winning $100,000 "Pinball Wizard" Instant Ticket. She explained that she has been playing "Pinball Wizard" Instant Tickets for years in hope to one day win big, and her wish finally came true.
Simone and her family experienced tragedy roughly a year ago, when their home caught fire. The fire destroyed their house, and most of their belongings were severely damaged. Simone said she believes this win was a blessing to help her and her family get back on their feet. "My kids were so excited when I told them, my son didn't even believe me at first," she stated. Simone plans to utilize the majority of her win to pay off all of her bills. With the remainder she wants to get a new vehicle and give a portion to each of her children. She purchased the winning ticket at Cumberland Farms, 1141 Boston Neck Rd., Narragansett.  

A Warwick man claimed a winning $20,000 "$1,000,000 Scratch" Instant Ticket. The winner said he initially saw the number "20" and thought "at least I won my money back". Then he scratched a little more off and saw three more zeros! "I had to put my glasses on, I couldn't believe it," he stated. He plans to give a portion to his daughter and utilize the rest of the money won to pay bills. In celebration of his win he had plans to take his daughter out to lunch somewhere special before heading to work. He purchased the winning ticket at Colbea Enterprises, 138 Connell Hwy., Newport.
