A Lincoln woman has won the second tier Lucky for Life prize of $25,000 a year for life. She opted to take the lump sum instead of the annuity, resulting in a one-time prize payment of $390,000. Her winning ticket from the Oct. 19 draw matched five numbers but not the Lucky Ball. Solar Gas, at 1815 Smith St. in North Providence, sold the winning ticket. The Rhode Island Lottery is not naming the woman.

A North Providence man claimed a $100,000 “Pinball Wizard” Instant Ticket top prize. He’s retiring soon, so he said the money will come in handy. He also plans to use some of his winnings to do some traveling. Mineral Spring Liquor, at 1005 Mineral Spring Ave. in North Providence, sold the winning ticket.

A Pawtucket man claimed a $50,000 “Frogger” Instant Ticket top prize. He plans to pay bills with his winnings. SAAD Food Mart, at 1414 Newport Ave. in Pawtucket, sold the winning ticket.

A North Providence man won $10,000 on the Oct. 20 Evening Numbers draw. He wagered $1 on a pair of four-digit straight bets and matched all four numbers in the exact order they were drawn, winning $5,000 on each, equaling $10,000. He plans to pay bills with his winnings. Sam’s Food, at 1 Humbert St. in North Providence, sold the winning tickets.
