COWORKERS WHITE AND DUNN CLAIM $100,000 POWERBALL® PRIZE

DOVER, DE - William and Sallie White from Claymont and Patrick and Cynthia Dunn from Philadelphia claimed a $100,000 POWERBALL® prize from the August 10 drawing at the Delaware Lottery Office in Dover this morning. The winners split their $100,000 prize equally. Each couple received $36,500, which represents their $50,000 prize minus $13,500 for federal tax.

William White and Patrick Dunn, mechanics for Worldwide Flight Services at the Philadelphia International Airport and musicians, purchased their winning POWERBALL® ticket at Yetters Liquors on Philadelphia Pike in Claymont the day of the drawing. Their Quick Pick ticket matched five of six winning numbers.

"I found out we won when I checked the winning numbers at Yetters Liquors yesterday," Dunn explained. "I was in complete shock. In fact, I almost fainted. We've been playing for years, but we've never won a large cash prize."

Although, the winners indicated they do not have definite plans for their prize money, Sallie White would like to put her share of the prize money toward a new car. When asked if they will continue to play Delaware Lottery Games, the winners responded, "Absolutely."

The POWERBALL® jackpot for Wednesday, August 14, 2002 has an estimated annuity value of $33 million. Tickets for POWERBALL® cost $1 and are available at more than 400 Delaware Lottery Retailers throughout the state.

Since the start of operations in 1975, the Delaware Lottery has contributed more
than $1.4 billion to the state's General Fund to help finance needed state services that benefit
everyone in Delaware. The Lottery offers a variety of games: POWERBALL®, LOTTO,
PLAY 3, PLAY 4, and assorted Instant Games. More information is available at
