New Fast Play® Game Speeds into Delaware
Lottery players skip the wait with new instant-win game from the terminal


Dover, DE --Delaware Lottery players are now winning cash faster than ever thanks to FAST PLAY®, the quickest instant-win game ever offered in the First State. An exciting new online game, Fast Play tickets went on sale this morning at the Delaware Lottery's more than 520 licensed retailers. The instant win game from the terminal is similar to traditional scratch off tickets - with a twist that makes Fast Play even speedier to play.

"Fast Play offers the immediate gratification of other Instant Games without the scratch," said to Wayne Lemons, Delaware Lottery Director. "The Lottery carries a variety of games for all players, and we're happy to offer something new for players who like the satisfaction of instantly winning and want their cash even faster."

Fast Play game tickets will be sold at price points in the $1-$2 range with varying cash prize levels. The first two games launched this morning with $1 tickets for "7-11" and $2 tickets for "Christmas Club." Both games can be played at in-store lottery terminals in the same fashion as other online games, such as Powerball® and Hot Lotto®.

"Game themes, styles, prize structures and odds are very similar to traditional instant scratch tickets," according to Lemons, "but Fast Play has its own feel. Stay tuned for new games every few months."

Ticket sales started strong on opening day and the Lottery had already awarded 1,504 winners with $5,041 as of mid afternoon.
