Ri Lottery

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE)- An East Providence woman hit all four of the numbers she played in the “Numbers Game” on Wednesday and won over $10,000.

Christen Botelho bought four tickets from Four Corners Food Mart on Warren Ave. in East Providence and hit on all four of them.

She played her son’s birthday numbers, 5-0-9-1, in order on two of the tickets, and then mixed them on the others.

Botelho hit on on all four of her plays. The numbers came up in order, so she won $10,416 from the two tickets where she played them in order, and $208 from the other two.

Botelho plans to put her winnings in the bank.
