Strength in numbers: 20 workers share $200,000 prize
Twenty co-workers from a Central Falls-based company claimed a $200,000 Powerball prize yesterday afternoon, the Rhode Island Lottery announced today.
They have played the lottery game since summer "whenever the jackpot is high enough" to pique their interest, a Rhode Island Lottery news release says.
The $200,000 ticket, matched the first five numbers but not the Powerball number, was drawn for Wednesday night’s $238.6 million Powerball. The ticket was bought from the Store 24 at 390 Broad St., Central Falls.
Saturday’s estimated Powerball jackpot is $275 million. It would rank as the seventh biggest jackpot in Powerball history if someone hits it.
