WARWICK, RI — The Rhode Island Lottery has been busy with high jackpots  from four recent wins, including a Warwick man who’s now $50,000 richer.

The lucky man claimed the final top prize in the “Power 10X” Instant Game. He purchased the ticket at Seasons Market, 34 Hartford Ave., Scituate. The win came at a good time, as he just closed on a new house.

The Powerball jackpot increased again for tonight’s drawing. It’s now at $630 million ($XXXX cash value).

A Woonsocket man won $100,000 playing Keno. He wagered $1 and matched 7 out of 7 numbers in the Keno Overtime draw while playing at Stop Quick Mart, 814 Diamond Hill Rd., Woonsocket. He plans on using the money to buy a house.

A man from Douglas, MA won $40,000 playing the “50X the Money” Instant Game he got over the holidays. The winning ticket was purchased at Cumberland Farms, 478 Broad St., Central Falls. He said he will probably put the money towards bills and small house projects.

Finally, a man from West Warwick cashed in his $77,514 Wild Money jackpot ticket from the January 5th draw. The winning ticket matched all five numbers drawn: 6, 16, 17, 21, 36.  It was purchased at Stop and Shop, 900 Tiogue Ave., Coventry. The winner plans to buy a new truck and pay bills.
