Dover, DE -- Linda Boyle, 38-years-old, of Millsboro, Delaware is having a fantastic spin with luck. Boyle entered the Delaware Lottery's WHEEL OF FORTUNEâ Instant Game second-chance drawing and won a trip to sunny California to audition on the globally-televised game show Wheel of Fortune.

Boyle has a winning history with the Delaware Lottery. The 38-year-old said that she frequently plays Delaware Lottery Instant Games and will continue to play - and why wouldn't she with all of her past success!
