Couple's relaxing night out turns into cause for celebration

(DOVER, Del.) — A relaxing night out for a local Delaware couple turned into quite the exciting evening when they discovered they were top prize winners for the Money to Burn Instant Game. Michael Oxbrough, a 49-year-old man from Dagsboro, purchased two tickets from Stockley Tavern in Georgetown while out with his wife. One of those tickets ended up being a $250,000 top prize winner.

He began to scratch the first ticket and noticed that one of his numbers matched one of the winning numbers. Realizing he had won, he decided to move on to the second ticket before uncovering his prize. Once the second ticket showed no winnings, he returned back to the first ticket to discover what he originally thought was a $250 prize, was actually $250,000.

“I jumped up from the bar and ran straight to the parking lot, hollering all the way,” he said. “I had to keep checking the ticket again and again to make sure it was really a big win.”

His wife and the bartender ran out after him and confirmed that this was no illusion – he really had won the top prize. Everyone then returned inside from the parking lot and Michael kindly purchased a round of drinks for everyone in the establishment to celebrate his fateful win.

When asked what he was planning to do with his winnings, Michael replied that he was looking forward to getting a little ahead of the game on things like bills and finances.
