NEW: $10,000 Unclaimed PowerBall Ticket Still Out There
Thursday, August 18, 2011
The ticket matched the four numbers and the PowerBall number. The winner did not purchase the Power Play feature for an additional dollar on the wager. If the player had opted for Power Play, the $10,000 would have turned into a $40,000 prize. Saturday’s estimated PowerBall jackpot is $37 million.
Another Rhode Island winner, Calvin Jones of Lincoln, the most recent Red Sox Spring Training Trip winner, didn’t wait long to claim his prize. Jones was talking to his girlfriend about their next vacation when he got the call saying he was a winner. The couple will go to Fort Myers next year for the 2012 Red Sox Spring Training. The trip includes airfare, hotel, car rental, $1,000 spending money, tickets to 2 games and other festivities. There are 3 more drawings coming up to pick 1 Spring Training trip winner and 33 merchandise prize packs.
