DELAWARE LOTTERY'S NEW $100,000 PARLAY CARD PROVES POPULAR WITH BETTORS
Delaware Park PLAYER misses $100,000 Jackpot by one Game on Monday Night

Dover, DE -Since its debut at Delaware's racetrack casinos three weeks ago, the Delaware Lottery's $100,000 Parlay Cards have quickly become a favorite among sports bettors. Last week, the $100,000 jackpot was nearly awarded to a single player who missed by just one game when the Arizona Cardinals lost to the San Francisco 49ers in Monday Night Football.

For a $5 wager, the $100,000 Parlay Card requires players to select 15 NFL games correctly against the point spread. Last week, one customer at Delaware Park selected the first 14 football games correctly and needed the favored Cardinals to beat the 49ers by more than 4 points. The 49ers beat the Cardinals 24-9.

"The State has been pleased with the popularity and excitement created by the $100,000 Parlay Card and we look forward to adding additional games to the sports lottery wagering menu in the future," said Delaware Acting Finance Secretary Tom Cook.

The $100,000 Parlay Card is distributed on Thursdays with the other weekly cards at Delaware's three racetrack casinos: Delaware Park, Dover Downs and Harrington Raceway. Because of NFL games on Thursday and Saturday, this week's $100,000 Parlay Card must be played by kickoff of the Cowboys-Saints game on Saturday at 8:20 p.m.

The Delaware Lottery also offers the following Parlay Cards each week: Half-Point, Teaser, Super Teaser, Delaware Favorites, Monday Night and Early Bird.

Since the start of operations in 1975, the Delaware Lottery has contributed more than $3 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®, HOT LOTTO®, MULTI-WIN LOTTO, FAST PLAY®, PLAY 3, PLAY 4, and assorted Instant Games. Delaware Lottery game and promotional details are available at delottery.com, at licensed retailers, and from the Lottery's office in Dover.
