A Jamestown woman claimed the $150,000 winning Powerball Power Play ticket sold in Rhode Island for Saturday’s draw.

The woman’s winning ticket matched four numbers and the Powerball number to win $50,000. However, she purchased the Power Play feature, which multiplied her prize by 3, the Power Play number for that draw, to win $150,000.

She told Rhode Island Lottery officials that she went to the Cumberland Farms at 41 North Road in Jamestown to get milk and with her change, she purchased a Powerball Power Play ticket. She plans to book a trip to Ireland and pay bills with the remainder of her winnings.

The winning numbers were 08 12 13 19 27 Powerball 04 and Powerplay 3.

Saturday’s Powerball Jackpot was an estimated $687,800,000, winning tickets were sold in Iowa and New York.
