DOVER, DE --A 51-year-old man from Wilmington claimed a $100,000 POWERBALL® prize from the August 27 drawing yesterday at the Delaware Lottery Office in Dover. The winner received $75,000. This figure represents his $100,000 prize minus $25,000 for federal tax.

A regular LOTTO and POWERBALL® player, the man purchased the winning ticket at TJ's Food Mart at 1700 Marsh Road in Wilmington on the day of the drawing. He found out he won when a store clerk checked his ticket.

He says the prize will come in handy for covering upcoming bills. Although he's never won anything before, he plans to continue to play Delaware Lottery Games.

The POWERBALL jackpot for Saturday, September 6 has an estimated annuity value of
$12 million. Friday's LOTTO jackpot has an estimated value of $415,000. Tickets for both games cost $1 and are available at nearly 500 Delaware Lottery Retailers.

Since the start of operations in 1975, the Delaware Lottery has contributed more than $1.6 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 and PLAY 4, and assorted Instant Games.
