Players entered their non-winning lottery tickets into a drawing

December 6, 2005. The prize includes a four day, three night
stay at one of three resort and casino properties in Las Vegas.

LLC. In addition to accommodations, the prize consists of
round-trip coach airfare for two, ground transfer to and from
the Las Vegas airport, show tickets for two at the chosen
property resort, $500 spending money and a nylon roller travel
McCaul, who claimed his prize on his 54th birthday, is a self-employed
auto mechanic who is married with children. He is a regular
Lottery player who, before winning the trip to Las Vegas,
had never won a Lottery prize. He purchased most of the VEGAS
CASH tickets he sent in for the drawing at his usual Lottery
Retailer, Naaman's Beverage Mart, Inc. in Claymont. He received
a message to call the Delaware Lottery Office and upon returning
the call he learned he had won a trip to Las Vegas. He immediately
told his friends at the auto shop because he was very excited
to learn of his win. This will be McCaul's first trip to Las
Vegas, on which he plans to bring his wife.
Perkins, a 56-year old employee of ShopRite, is also married
with a family. She and her husband are regular Lottery players
and purchased the tickets they sent into the drawing from
ShopRite and Suburban Tobacco, both located in Newark. After
receiving a phone call from the Delaware Lottery Office to
inform her of her win, Perkins told her husband who plans
to accompany her on the trip. Though she had visited Las Vegas
once in 2001, she is very excited and looking forward to this
The third winner, Breezy Brown, purchased his VEGAS CASH ticket
at Brownie's Package Store in Delmar. As a regular Lottery
player, Brown especially enjoys the Lottery's second-chance
drawings. On the same day, after learning of his win, Brown
drove directly to the Lottery Office to claim his prize.
