Call it a string of luck for the state, but someone just won the Powerball Lottery from Rhode Island again, just off the heels of 81-year-old, Louise White claiming the more than $300+ million dollar Powerball Lottery a week ago. Louise is a Rhode Island native as well.
The most current winnings are for $60 million, and if the winner takes a lump sum, they will get around $37 million dollars. The combined winnings including both winners is almost $400 million dollars.
The winning ticket was sold at Quickets Convenience Store in Smithfield and the state will get $2.6 million bringing the total amount from both lottery winners to over $16 million dollars for the state.
States have had winners who have won lottery prizes in the same year, but back to back winners are pretty rare! No one has stepped up to claim the prize as of yet!
