Mega Millions ticket worth $250K sold in RI
CRANSTON, R.I. - March 12, 2012 (WPVI) -- Rhode Island's lucky lottery streak continues, with a Mega Millions ticket worth $250,000 sold in Providence.
State lottery officials say the ticket for Friday night's $148 million drawing was sold at a convenience store at the Three Regency Plaza apartments. It matched five numbers but not the Mega Ball number.
No one has come forward to claim the prize.
Last week, an 81-year-old Newport woman claimed the $336.4 million jackpot for the Feb. 11 Powerball drawing. That was the sixth largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history.
A Powerball ticket sold in the town of Smithfield hit the jackpot a day later. The winner of the $60 million prize has yet to be announced.
