DOVER, DE -Two lucky winners received a $1,000 "Cash Blast" cash prize this week after participating in the Delaware Lottery's Instant Game summer promotion. David Gale of Wilmington, Del. and Kathy Denk of Berlin, Md. won the second-chance drawings that completed the promotion, which featured events at popular Delaware hot spots.

"These summer promotions do a great job of demonstrating the entertainment value of our products," said Wayne Lemons, Delaware State Lottery Director. "They give potential players a wonderful opportunity to experience first-hand the fun and excitement of playing Delaware Lottery Instant Games."

Events were held Thursdays at Back Stage Cafe in Wilmington and Sundays at the Rusty Rudder in Dewey Beach in conjunction with local radio stations WSTW-FM and WOSC-FM. From July 7 through August 29, on-air talent from each station gave away CASH BLAST Instant Game tickets and "Go Scratch" t-shirts to participants who provided correct answers to Lottery trivia questions. Participants could win $1,000 in cash instantly by scratching off the CASH BLAST Instant Game tickets. Non-winning tickets collected at each event were entered in each station's second-chance drawing for a $1,000 "Cash Blast" cash prize.

Since the start of operations in 1975, the Delaware Lottery has contributed more than $1.4 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®, LOTTO, PLAY 3, PLAY 4, and assorted Instant Games. More information is available at
