Lewes man wins $100,000 in an Instant

Dover, DE — A 59-year-old Lewes man purchased one CASH GLITTER Instant Game ticket while visiting Daily Market in Lewes. That ticket ended up winning the man one of the game’s $100,000 top prizes.

The man, who wished to remain anonymous, said that he enjoys playing MULTI WIN LOTTO and KENO®, but especially likes playing Instant Games every time he visits Daily Market.

“I was blown away,” the man said, referring to the moment he realized that he had won. “I kept looking at the ticket (CASH GLITTER) in shock. It was so exciting!”

“We’re very pleased to be able to offer Delaware Lottery players such big top prizes in our Instant Games,” said Vernon Kirk, Director of the Delaware Lottery. “It’s always so exciting when our players win those prizes.”

When asked what he was planning to do with his winnings, the man said he wanted to pay off his and his wife’s cars and put the rest into a money market account.

“This is going to have a big impact on my life,” the man said. “It’ll really help me pad my retirement savings.”

The man claimed his prize from Lottery Headquarters on February 20, 2020.
