RI lottery results have changed the fates of many residents, such as Sheila Botelho, who was 2007’s lucky winner in RI Powerball as she won $151,900,000.
Rilot is also behind the launch of Lotto, which is the first ever Lottery Show on TV. The top prize of this action game and fun TV show was $25,000, and tickets were $1 with weekly drawings.
Rhode Island Lottery is also a founding member of the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL), which was formed so that smaller states could have the chance to offer bigger prizes. It is also the first state lottery which began to sell tickets of the game Powerball.
