Attleboro Man Wins $40K in Power Ball

He plans to spend the money on house repairs.

It wasn't the big prize of $587.5 million, but an Attleboro man took home a large check this week after hitting four of the five white ball numbers as well as the powerplay number in the recent Powerball drawing with a ticket he purchased in Pawtucket. The man earned $40,000.

"He plans to do some repairs on his house including a new roof and shingles," the Rhode Island Lottery's website states.

The lottery's website does not identify the man. The Providence Journal reported his name is Jacinto Gomez.
