NEW: $2 Million Power Ball Winner Hits in Rhode Island

Friday, February 08, 2013

 

The PowerBall jackpot may have been hit in Virginia, but last night's drawing still proved to be very lucky for Rhode Island. A $2,000,000 PowerBall PowerPlay ticket and a $10,000 PowerBall ticket were sold.

The PowerBall® jackpot may have been hit in Virginia, but Wednesday nights' drawing still proved to be very lucky for Rhode Island. A $2,000,000 PowerBall® PowerPlay® ticket and a $10,000 PowerBall® ticket were sold.

One of the winning PowerBall® tickets matched five numbers but not the PowerBall® number, for the standard payout of $1,000,000. However, the Power Play® feature was added for an extra dollar which increased the prize to $2,000,000. This is the second $2,000,000 PowerBall® ticket sold in Rhode Island in just two months. The other winning PowerBall® ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number for the standard payout of $10,000. This 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 prize would have been increased to $40,000.

The winning $2,000,000 PowerBall® PowerPlay® ticket was purchased at AJ's Mini Market, 939 Social St., Woonsocket. The winning $10,000 PowerBall® ticket was purchased from Olde Smoke Shoppe, 130 Westminster St., Providence. Both tickets remain unclaimed.

Saturday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $40 million.

The winning hasn't stopped there; a $35,000 Peppermint 7's Instant Ticket was also claimed. A gentleman from Taunton, MA randomly purchased the ticket while at Seaplane Diner, 307 Allens Ave., Providence. He plans to pay bills and go on vacation.
