$150,000 Claimed by New Castle Resident Playing PLATINUM PAYOUT

Dover, DE — A 39-year-old bartender from New Castle has claimed the first $150,000 prize from Instant Game PLATINUM PAYOUT. The woman, who chose to remain anonymous, purchased the winning ticket from Tobacco Time in Bear.

The winner started playing the Delaware Lottery when she was 21 and typically purchases five tickets at a time. When she scratched the winning ticket, she was overwhelmed with excitement, shaking at the discovery. She shared the news with her boyfriend first and is still deciding how to use her winnings.

"We congratulate this winner on her $150,000 win," said Helene Keeley, Director of the Delaware Lottery. "Her story reflects the excitement our games bring to players.”

One top prize of $150,000 remains for Instant Game PLATINUM PAYOUT. The Delaware Lottery also offers the $20 Instant Game CASH PARTY that has two top prizes of $100,000 still available along with $30 MEGA BUCKS BLOWOUT that has three $300,000 top prizes remaining.
