$1 Million powerball® ticket claimed
Charles Scott Jr. of Warwick claimed a $1 million PowerBall® prize from the January 13th draw. His Quick Pick ticket matched all five numbers but not the PowerBall® number to win $1,000,000. He explained that his wife called him to remind him "the big drawing is tonight," so he stopped at Conimicut Liquors, 1230 West Shore Rd., Warwick, and purchased the PowerBall® ticket. The following day he happily assumed that he won $500, until his wife checked the ticket and told him to "come back home and sign this ticket, it's a million-dollar winner." He said he was in complete shock. He plans to use some of the money to purchase a new vehicle for himself and his wife.
