WOMAN LEARNS OF $80,000 MULTI-WIN LOTTO JACKPOT WIN
DURING QUICK ROUTINE ERRAND

Dover, DE -- A quick stop for some lip balm proved to be time well spent after a Wilmington woman used the Quick Check following her purchase to learn she had won the October 28, 2005 MULTI-WIN LOTTO drawing. She claimed her MULTI-WIN LOTTO top prize worth $80,000 yesterday afternoon at the Delaware Lottery Office in Dover. The winner received a check for $60,078 which represents her prize minus federal withholding taxes. To date, the MULTI-WIN LOTTO game has had more than 750,000 winners who have won prizes totaling over $3.7 million.

The 44-year old woman, who has chosen to remain anonymous, purchased her winning ticket at TJ's Food Mart at the intersection of Marsh Rd. and Wilson Rd. in Wilmington. The woman checked her ticket at a Lottery Retailer on Friday night, and claimed her prize yesterday. "We were screaming and yelling 'woo hoo' in the store," she added. Still shocked, the winner told Lottery Officials she has no plans yet for the prize money and absolutely plans to continue playing MULTI-WIN LOTTO in the future.

Since the start of operations in 1975, the Delaware Lottery has contributed more than
$2.1 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.
