DOVER, DE - A 55-year-old man from Bear, DE, claimed the May 11, 2001, All Cash Lotto jackpot prize of $405,000 this morning at the Delaware Lottery Office in Dover. The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, was awarded $291,600, which represents his $405,000 prize minus $113,400 for federal tax.
He purchased the winning Quick Pick ticket the day of the drawing (May 11) at Pleasant Hill Lanes, a bowling alley on Newport Pike in Wilmington. The winner said he learned the ticket was the winner when he checked the numbers in the News Journal the day after the drawing. "I was in such shock that I went to Cumberland Farms down the street from my house to have the clerk double-check my winning ticket. I just couldn't believe it. In fact, I'm still in shock!"
The winner told Lottery Officials the first thing he plans to do with his prize money is buy a house. He said he plays All Cash Lotto often and will continue playing Lottery games.
