THE DELAWARE LOTTERY INTRODUCES TWO NEW INSTANT GAMES
The Delaware Lottery is introducing two new Instant Games-GARAGE SALE and $599-that give players several chances on every ticket to win instant cash prizes. Prizes for GARAGE SALE range from $1 to a top prize of $1,000, and prizes for $599 range from $1 to a top prize of $599.
In the GARAGE SALE game, players scratch off the play area. If they match any of "YOUR ITEMS" to the "GARAGE SALE ITEM," they win the prize shown for that matching item. The GARAGE SALE game includes 105,618 prizes with a total value of $281,800. The average odds of winning a prize playing GARAGE SALE are 1 in 4.54, based on selling all 480,000 tickets ordered for this game.
In $599, a player scratches off the play area. If the player matches any "CORNER PRIZE" to "YOUR PRIZE," the player wins that amount. The $599 game includes 112,496 prizes with a total value of $286,504. The average odds of winning a prize playing $599 are 1 in 4.27, based on the sale of all 480,000 tickets printed for this game.
Tickets for GARAGE SALE and $599 cost $1 and are now available at all Delaware Lottery Retailers.
