The Farrelly Brothers aren't the only connection Rhode Island has to the Three Stooges®. The Rhode Island Lottery also has a Three Stooges® Instant Game, and just a day after the movie opened in theaters, a Warwick woman won $10,000 on that Instant Ticket.
The winner said she bought the ticket on a whim because her 5-year-old daughter loves to watch “The Three Stooges®” on television and keeps asking to go see the movie. The woman couldn't believe her luck and went straight over to her boyfriend's house on Saturday so he could double check the ticket. She plans to share the money with her boyfriend and use it toward buying a car. Sandy Lane Gas Convenience in Warwick sold the winning ticket.
