New York pilot is flying high after winning $150,000 playing CASH BONANZA

Dover, DE — A 74-year-old pilot from Albany, New York claimed the final $150,000 prize from CASH BONANZA. The winner, who wished to remain anonymous, said he just started playing the lottery this month and picked up his lucky ticket from Airport Liquors on Churchman’s Road in New Castle.
