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.
