Cranston Man Claims $1 Million Powerball® Ticket
$20,500 Keno Plus Win & A $10,000 Win on Christmas Eve
A Cranston man claimed the $1 million winning Powerball® ticket from the September 27th draw. His winning ticket matched all five numbers but not the Powerball® number to win $1,000,000. With his winnings, he plans to treat himself to a new set of golf clubs, and save the remainder. Street Corner, 400 Bald Hill Rd., Warwick, located in the Warwick Mall, sold the winning ticket.
Saturday's estimated Powerball® jackpot is $384 million.
Gary Johnson of Warwick claimed a $20,500 Keno Plus win. He wagered $5 on a five-spot Keno Plus game. He matched all five numbers to win the standard prize payout of $2,050. However, he opted to play the Keno Plus feature by doubling his base wager, so his prize was multiplied by 10, the Keno Plus number drawn, to win $20,500. He plans to use some of his winning to visit his daughter who lives out of state. Warwick Shell, 2211 West Shore Rd., Warwick, sold the winning ticket.
A Harrisville man claimed a $10,000 Daily Numbers win from the December 24th evening draw. He wagered $1 on two 4-digit straight bets. He matched all four digits in the exact order they were drawn to win $5,000 on each bet, equaling $10,000. The winning number combination was, 3 3 3 3. He does not have any immediate plans for his winnings. Stateline Wine & Spirits, 880 Central Ave., Pawtucket, sold the winning ticket.
