Dover woman claims final $100,000 BONUS MONEY top prize

Dover, DE — A 50-year-old safety verifier from Dover recently purchased three Instant Game tickets while visiting Mike’s Food Market in Milford. One of those tickets was for the $20 price point Instant Game BONUS MONEY. When the woman scratched the ticket, she was thrilled to discover she was a $100,000 winner.

The woman said she has been playing the Delaware Lottery for about ten years. She plays Instant Games because she loves the anticipation and chances to win big.   

“I cried when I saw how much I won,” the woman said. “I’m still in shock.” The woman said she plans to use the prize money to pay some bills.  

“What a thrilling win,” said Helene Keeley, Acting Director of the Delaware Lottery. “It’s always great to see an Instant Game player bring home a big top prize.”

While this may be the final top prize for BONUS MONEY, the Delaware Lottery also currently offers plenty of other ways to win big with $20 price point Instant Games. $100K ULTIMATE CASH! has three top prizes of $100,000 remaining, while BIG BUCKS BLOWOUT has two $150,000 top prizes currently available.
