WANTED: Expiring $200,000 Powerball Winning Ticket
While One Prize Awaits a Winner, a Camden Woman Scores
Multi-Win Lottery Jackpot

Dover, DE -- A $200,000 Powerball prize drawn last April is set to expire on Wednesday. On April 5, 2006, a ticket bought at Faber Newsstand in the Wilmington Train Station matched five numbers, but not the all-important Powerball. That winning ticket still hasn't been claimed.
The man, who has chosen to remain anonymous, is now working as a liquor store manager in Rehoboth Beach and was absolutely shocked that he was able to match four numbers and the Powerball.

The ticket was purchased on the evening of Monday, April 3, 2006 as part of a $5 Quick Pick. Thousands of commuters and travelers pass through the train station each day, so the winner could conceivably be from anywhere on the East Coast.

"We really hope the winner comes forward," said Wayne Lemons, director of the Delaware State Lottery. "$200,000 can change a person's life. So, I encourage everyone who has passed through the train station to check their coat pockets and brief cases. They could be a little bit richer tomorrow."

Should the prize go unclaimed, the money will go into the State's General Fund.

In other news, a 70-year-old Camden woman has come forward as the winner of more than $133,000 from March 19's Multi-Win Lotto drawing.

The grandmother of four, who has chosen to remain anonymous, bought the winner when she purchased five tickets at Camden Super Spirits. The woman has won smaller prizes in the past but nothing more than $5,000.

She added that she doesn't have big plans for the money as she will probably just pay some bills and save the rest. "This is just going to make things a little more comfortable," she joked

She discovered her win by calling the Delaware Lottery hotline. To check your potentially winning number, call 1-800-338-6200.
