LOTTERY PROMOTION NETS TWO END-OF-SUMMER WINNERS

DOVER, DE-How would you like to end the summer with an extra $1,000?   Two lucky winners just did, thanks to the Delaware Lottery's COOL CASH Instant Game Summer Promotion.  Tracey Whaley of Laurel, Del. and Monica Wells of Landenburg, Pa. each won $1,000 cash during second-chance drawings that wrapped up the Lottery's summer promotional events.

 "Using Lottery trivia and giving away free Instant Game tickets gave us a fun way to educate people about our organization," said Brian Peters, Delaware Lottery Marketing Director.   "These events also gave participants a free chance to play, and introduced some non-players to the entertainment value of Instant Games.   Of course, we're delighted for our two second chance prize winners who ended the summer with an extra $1,000."   

The promotions were held from July 27 to August 31 at Kahunaville in Wilmington and at the Starboard in Dewey Beach, in conjunction with local radio stations WSTW-FM and WJNE-FM.  Lottery spokesman Geno Bisconte, a.k.a. "Mr. Lottery," gave away COOL CASH Instant Game tickets and "Go Scratch" t-shirts to participants who provided correct answers to Lottery trivia questions.  COOL CASH Instant Game tickets offer the chance to win up to $1,000 instantly.   Non-winning tickets were collected at the events and entered in the second-chance drawings.  Each radio station selected one winner-WJNE picked Whaley on August 27 and WSTW picked Wells on September 4 for the "Cool Grand" $1,000 cash prizes.   

A variety of Delaware Lottery Instant Games are available at more than 400 Retailers throughout the state.  Tickets cost $1, $2 and $5.

Since the start of operations in 1975, the Delaware Lottery has contributed more than $1.1 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 including POWERBALL®, All Cash Lotto, Rolldown®, PLAY 3 and PLAY 4, and assorted Instant Games.
