And the Powerball winner is: Sheila Botelho of Swansea
The winner of the $151.9-million Powerball Jackpot bought her ticket in Rhode Island, but she’s a Massachusetts resident.
Sheila Botelho, of Swansea, is not expected to make an appearance today, but her lawyer, Peter Saulino, is at Lottery headquarters in Cranston to claim the prize.
The winning ticket, bought at the Warren Mart, at 428 Child St. in Warren, was the biggest Powerball win in Rhode Island’s history.
If Botelho chooses to receive a lump sum, she’ll be about $51million richer by the end of the day.
