A $2,000,000 winning Powerball® Power Play® ticket was sold in Rhode Island for last night’s $1.08 billion drawing. The winning ticket matched five numbers, but not the Powerball® number, to win the standard payout of $1,000,000. However, since the winner opted to pay an additional dollar for the Power Play® feature, and the Power Play multiplier selected for the draw was 2, the prize doubled to $2,000,000. Cumberland Farms,1933 Mineral Spring Ave., North Providence sold the winning ticket.
There was also a $50,000 winning Powerball® ticket sold in last night’s drawing. The winning ticket matched four numbers and the Powerball® number to win $50,000. Had the player purchased the Power Play® feature, the prize would have been multiplied by 2, to win $100,000. The winning ticket was purchased at Barbosa Liquors, 963 Narragansett Blvd., Providence.
