DELAWARE NATIVE WINS $96,100 MULTI-WIN LOTTO PRIZE

Dover, DE -- The day after the June 29, 2005 MULTI-WIN LOTTO drawing, a 39-year-old Delaware woman claimed her prize worth $96,100 at the Delaware Lottery Office in Dover. The winner received a check for $76,880 which represents her $96,100 prize minus federal taxes withheld.

The married transcriptionist, who has chosen to remain anonymous, purchased her ticket at Harmony Exxon in Newark. An avid Lottery player, she used Quick Pick to select her numbers and was in shock and disbelief when she called the Lottery Player Information number (1-800-338-6200) to find out she won. While she has won small amounts in the past playing the Lottery, this is the largest prize she has won to date. When Lottery Officials asked her plans for her winnings, the winner replied that she plans on paying off her debt as well as donating a portion of the winnings to a local cause.

Since the start of operations in 1975, the Delaware Lottery has contributed more than
$1.8 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®, MULTI-WIN LOTTO, PLAY 3, PLAY 4, and assorted Instant Games.
