Georgetown man wins $300,000 playing SERIOUS MONEY

Dover, DE — A self-employed Georgetown man has claimed the final $300,000 top prize for the $30 price point Instant Game SERIOUS MONEY. The man, who wished to remain anonymous, purchased the winning ticket from Redner’s Market #18 on College Park Lane in Georgetown.

The man said “I’ve been a loyal Instant Game player for a long time, and I purchase one ticket just about every day. It’s a lot of fun.”

The man said he never expected such an exciting outcome when he played and then scanned this particular ticket. “I’ve won a big top prize before, but it was a real shock to win $300,000.” The man said he called a friend to tell them the good news shortly after scanning the ticket.

“Congratulations to this lucky player,” said Helene Keeley, Director of the Delaware Lottery. “We’re always happy to see a longtime fan of Instant Games take home a six-figure top prize.”

When it comes to choosing what to do with his winnings, the man said he plans to put it all into savings for now. “I’m not done playing either,” the man added. “I’m looking forward to seeing what other Instant Game prizes are in my future.”

While this lucky player has already claimed the final $300,000 top prize for SERIOUS MONEY, one $10,000 prize still remains. At the same $30 price point, MORE SERIOUS MONEY also has fourteen $10,000 prizes still up for grabs, as well as three top prizes of $300,000. That means there’s still plenty of chances to win a seriously big prize of your own. To find a Delaware Lottery retailer near you, please visit: Where To Buy | Delaware Lottery.
