East Providence Stop & Shop location sells winning lottery ticket


CRANSTON — The Rhode Island Lottery released news of three more winners of significant prizes, including another local ties.

A gentleman from Foster walked into the Rhode Island Lottery Headquarters this morning with two Daily Numbers winning tickets totaling $31,248. He played number 6 7 5 9, Saturday's Daily Number, for his daughter's birthday. He wagered $5 on a 4-digit combo and won $26,040. That ticket was purchased from Solar Gas, 1815 Smith St., North Providence. On another ticket, he played the same number wagering $1 on a 4-digit combo and won $5,208. That winning ticket was purchased from Hess Express, 263 Putnam Pike, Smithfield.

A woman from East Greenwich has also cashed in a winning $25,000 Lucky for Life Quick Pick ticket from yesterday's drawing. She plans to pay bills and help her son move. The ticket matched five numbers, but not the Lucky Ball number. The Cumberland Farms at 1600 Nooseneck Hill Rd., Coventry, sold the winning ticket.

In addition, Friday night's Mega Millions drawing resulted in a $10,000 winning ticket sold. The ticket matched four numbers and the Mega Ball number. The standard payout for this type of win is $10,000. The winner did not purchase the Megaplier feature for an additional dollar on the wager. If the player had opted for the Megaplier, the $10,000 prize would have been multiplied by three, Friday's Megaplier number, to equal $30,000. The winning ticket, purchased at Stop & Shop, 1925 Pawtucket Ave., East Providence, has yet to be claimed.
