Dover, DE -- Rachel Vickers of Dover has received a $1,000 cash grand prize from the Delaware Lottery as a part of a live event promotion in Newark during the month of September. Participants entered their non-winning SUMMER FUN tickets into a second-chance drawing at the end of the month for $1,000, which was awarded to Vickers yesterday.

The Delaware Lottery held weekly events every Thursday in September in Newark at Klondike Kate's with WRDX-FM. These events included live radio broadcasts with popular radio personalities, Instant Game ticket giveaways and a chance to enter non-winning tickets in a drawing for a $1,000 grand prize. The winning name was announced during a live on-air broadcast yesterday morning. During the events, Lottery talent, comedian Geno Bisconte, entertained patrons with Lottery trivia and t-shirt giveaways. Participants at the events were also given the opportunity to have their picture taken with friends and received a souvenir photo and frame card to take home with them that night.

"The live event promotions are an opportunity for the Delaware Lottery to identify with another group of players in their own environment," said Brian Peters, deputy director of sales and marketing for the Delaware Lottery. "They provide a great chance for players to have fun and get a second-chance at winning a $1,000 cash prize while attending events at various popular venues statewide."

The Delaware Lottery will hold events every Friday during the month of October at Kelly's Logan House in Wilmington with WJBR-FM. The Lottery can also be spotted at some of the First State's well-known local events like the Apple Scrapple Festival in Bridgeville, World Championship Punkin Chunkin in Millsboro, and all remaining home University of Delaware Football games. Additional information is available on the Delaware Lottery website,

The Lottery offers a variety of games: POWERBALL®, MULTI-WIN LOTTO, PLAY 3, PLAY 4, and assorted Instant Games.
