$1 Million Powerball Ticket Sold In Rhode Island

Someone won $1 million in last night’s Powerball® drawing. The winning ticket matched all five numbers but not the Powerball® number to win $1,000,000. Mutual Mart, 900 Charles St., North Providence, sold the winning ticket. The prize has yet to be claimed.

Saturday’s estimated Powerball® jackpot is $222 million.

While waiting for the big Powerball® winner to come forward to claim, both “Premier VIP” second chance winners came in to pick their prizes for the first-ever “Winner’s Choice” second chance drawing. Winners can choose from Trip Prizes or $4,000 cash.

Michaela Miller of Warwick opted to take the $4,000 cash prize so she and her son could plan their own trip together!

Kathleen Whewell of Lincoln also took the $4,000 cash prize so she could have even more options to spend her winnings.

The next “Premier VIP” second chance drawing is May 11, 2022. Players can enter their non-winning “Premier VIP” tickets by first joining or logging into Rhode Island Lottery’s VIP Club, then by entering the serial number found on the front of each ticket.
