There’s a winner somewhere
The Lottery is waiting for someone to cash in the winning $25,000-a-year-for-life prize from the Lucky for Life drawing on Dec. 2. Winning numbers for the past 12 months of drawings can be found on the Rhode Island Lottery’s Website Winning Numbers pages. With this reminder to check old and new tickets, the Lottery is hopeful that the lucky winners will come forward and claim their prizes soon.
A gentleman from Yonkers, N.Y., didn’t wait long to cash in his winning $35,000 Winter Winfall Instant Ticket. He was visiting Rhode Island with family and decided to purchase the ticket at Cumberland Farms, 2643 Hartford Ave., Johnston, on Christmas Day. He now plans to take a vacation to Florida this February.
Additionally, an $18,000 Keno Plus ticket was claimed by a woman from Cranston. She was playing at Colbea Enterprises, 242 County St., Barrington. She wagered $2 on a 7-spot game to win $9,000. However, the 2X multiplier came up and doubled her prize to $18,000. She plans to spend it wisely.
