Winning PowerBall ticket sold at East Providence store

Posted

CRANSTON — The Wednesday night, Dec. 11, PowerBall drawing for the $122 million  jackpot was hit by two winning tickets, one sold in Massachusetts and one sold in Nebraska.

In addition, a $10,000 winner came from Rhode Island with the ticket sold locally at the Cumberland Farms convenience story located at 350 North Broadway, East Providence.

The local ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall number, for the standard payout of $10,000.  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 prize would have been increased to $40,000.

The Saturday, Dec. 14, estimated PowerBall jackpot is $40 million. Non-winning $10 or higher PowerBall tickets can be entered for a second chance to win a trip to the Pro Football Hall of Fame Ultimate Tailgate Party in Cleveland, Ohio.
