A Providence man won $10,000 in Wednesday's Daily Numbers drawing by playing the numbers he found on an orange.

And the Rhode Island Lottery said Thursday that he's not the only one to win that way.

Samuel Reyes played 3-1-0-7 on two straight tickets and won $5,000 on each. He bought the winning tickets at Sanchez Liquor in Providence.

The Lot said another person won $2,604 by playing the same number from an orange.

A Warwick man claimed a $10,000 prize from Saturday's Powerball drawing. He matched four numbers and the Powerball. He said he's going to Atlantic City for the Fourth of July.
