Felton woman wins $15,000 playing CASH BONUS

Dover, DE — Antoinette Fasano, a 55-year-old deli manager from Felton, enjoys playing the Delaware Lottery whenever she gets a lucky feeling. During a recent visit to Geo’s Liquors in Felton, Ms. Fasano purchased two Instant Game tickets, including a $5 CASH BONUS Instant Game ticket. Her lucky feeling turned into a big reason to celebrate when that ticket turned out to be a $15,000 winner.

Ms. Fasano said her first reaction after scratching the ticket and realizing she won was, “Is this for real?” When asked what she was planning to do with her winnings, Ms. Fasano said she plans to put the money toward a new car, paying some bills, and treating her daughter to some new clothes over the holidays.

“It’s always exciting when our players win large cash prizes, especially this time of the year!” said Vernon Kirk, Director of the Delaware Lottery. “Congratulations to Ms. Fasano on her $15,000 win!”

Ms. Fasano started playing the Delaware Lottery 25 years ago and has had a few wins in the past, but this is the biggest one so far. Her boyfriend was the first to hear about her exciting news.

Ms. Fasano claimed her prize from Lottery Headquarters on November 4, 2020.
