$35,000 Birthday Gift
Phone Number Proves to be a Lucky Combination
Michael Massed of Warren claimed a $35,000 "Royal Riches" Instant Ticket top prize. The Instant Ticket was given to him as a birthday gift from his sister. He initially thought he won $35 then he noticed the comma and thought this gift must be a prank. So, he asked a local retailer to check the ticket for him and to his surprise the retailer verified that he truly did win $35,000! He plans to put the money in the bank. The winning ticket was purchased at Stop & Shop, 605 Metacom Ave., Bristol.
A Warwick woman won $10,000 on the February 1st Daily Numbers evening draw. She wagered $1.00 on two straight bets and matched all four digits in the exact order to win $5,000 on each. The winning numbers – 8 9 6 4 – represent the last four digits of her phone number. She plans to use the money won toward renovations on her house. The winning tickets were purchased at US Dollar Mart, 2424 West Shore Rd., Warwick.
