Rhode Island Powerball Rules

Choose five numbers between 1 and 69, and one Powerball between 1 and 26. Alternatively, you can have your numbers randomly selected for you by playing a Quick Pick – just mark the вЂ˜QP’ box on your playslip. The following game rules are also in effect in Rhode Island:

  • You must be at least 18 years of age to purchase lottery tickets.
  • You can play up to 26 consecutive drawings in advance by marking the appropriate вЂ˜Multidraw’ option on your playslip.
  • Tickets can be purchased up until 21:50 ET on the night of each draw. Sales reopen for the following drawing shortly after the winning numbers have been confirmed.
  • A state tax of 5.99 percent will be taken on any prizes over $5,000.

Powerball drawings are broadcast locally on WPRI-TV 12 at 22:59 ET.

Prizes up to $599 can be claimed from any Powerball RI retailer. Prizes worth more than this must be collected from the lottery’s headquarters at 1425 Pontiac Ave., Cranston, RI 02920. You need to present a government-issued photo identification and your social security number when claiming prizes worth more than $599. If you win the Powerball jackpot, you are advised to call the lottery in advance on 1-401-463-6500, so they can talk you through the claim process.

When claiming a big prize as part of a lottery pool or group, each member needs to provide government-issued photo ID and their social security number for the claim to be processed. Prize money will then be paid out to each person individually, and each will be taxed accordingly.

You have up to one year from the date of a winning draw to claim any prizes. Any prize money left unclaimed after this period will be returned to the state’s General Fund. You have 60 days from the date you claim a jackpot prize to decide whether you want to take the annuity or lump sum payout.

Lottery tickets are bearer instruments, so the Rhode Island Lottery will pay out prizes to anyone in possession of a winning ticket. To protect yourself in the event that your ticket is lost or stolen, sign and print your name on the back of it. If someone else then presents the ticket to claim a prize, it will not be paid out to them, and it will make it easier to prove you are the rightful owner. Prizes may not be paid out if a lottery ticket is too damaged to be validated.

If you win the Powerball jackpot, you can request that your personal details remain private and are not used for promotional purposes by the Rhode Island Lottery. Information such as your name, the prize amount, and where you bought your ticket is public information, however, so the lottery would have to release these details upon request. Other sensitive information, such as your social security number and address, will not be disclosed.

The majority of the revenue from lottery ticket sales in Rhode Island is used to pay out prizes, with the remaining split between retailer commissions, operating costs, and transfers to the General Fund. Money that is allocated to the General Fund is used for a range of public services, from education to public safety. You can see exactly how lottery revenues are split in the table below:

Area of Spending Percentage of Revenue
Prizes 80.5%
General Fund 9.9%
Retailer Commissions 9.2%
Operating Costs 0.4%

More than half of the money allocated to the General Fund is spent on human services, such as welfare programs and public assistance. This encompasses everything from child support to elderly affairs and is handled by the state’s Department of Human Services. Another large proportion – over 20 percent – is used to aid public schools and students across 66 districts. Funds are distributed according to a formula enacted by the state’s General Assembly.

The remaining funds are spread across a number of sectors, including debt services, natural resources, and transfers to the Rhode Island Capital Plan Fund (RICAP), which is in place to ensure that the state’s public transportation is safe and reliable.

The biggest Powerball jackpot won in Rhode Island was worth $336 million and was claimed by the Rainbow Sherbert Trust in February 2012. Lottery winners cannot conceal their identities by claiming through a trust, however, so the name of the winner was also released. Louise White, an 81-year-old from Newport, RI, said she set up the trust to вЂ˜avoid complications’ and maintain some degree of privacy. The trust was named after an ice cream flavor sold at the Shop & Stop supermarket where she bought her winning ticket, including the misspelling of the word вЂ˜sherbet’.

About the Rhode Island Lottery

The Rhode Island Lottery was created in 1973 with the passage of a constitutional amendment. The first tickets went on sale in 1974 and, since then, more than $7.4 billion has been generated in revenue. By law, RI Lottery revenue is transferred to the State General Fund, which benefits all Rhode Island residents. The Fund supports tax relief, education, public safety, law enforcement, and human services, and the Rhode Island Legislature is responsible for appropriating money from the General Fund among Rhode Island’s 39 cities and towns.
