He did not exactly hit the record-breaking jackpot, but the winner of $40,000 from last week’s Powerball drawing has come forward to claim his prize. Rhode Island Lottery officials said Tuesday that an Attleboro, Mass., man cashed in his winning ticket, which he bought in Pawtucket. He said he plans to make some repairs to his house, including putting on a new roof and shingles. Rhode Island sold more than $3 million in tickets for the Wednesday night drawing worth $587.5 million, the largest in the game’s history. Two winning jackpot tickets were sold, one in Arizona and one in Missouri.
