REHOBOTH BEACH NATIVE TAKES HOME $50,004 PLAYING POWERBALL
November 29, 2015
A 57-year-old retired Delmarva Power employee from Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, won $50,004 playing the POWERBALL on November 4, 2015. The man purchased his winning ticket at 3rd Base Liquors in Frederica, Delaware.

He discovered his win after checking his numbers online. “I left my tickets in my car and the numbers that I saw on the computer looked very familiar,” said the winner, who played a Quick Pick and selected the POWERBALL number. “Once I realized I won, my body went numb. I’ve been playing the Lottery on and off for about 30 years, and this is my largest win.”

Still in disbelief that he won, the man stopped at the Safeway in Dover to scan his ticket before claiming his prize at the Lottery office. “A woman at Safeway saw me scanning my ticket and asked me if I won $5,000. When I told her that it was actually $50,004, she was all giggly,” he added.

The winner matched four white balls plus the POWERBALL on one line and matched the POWERBALL on another line to win $50,004. The result of this prize is due to the POWERBALL redesign that went into effect on October 4, 2015. Players now choose their first five numbers from a set of 69 (previously 59) white balls and their POWERBALL from a pool of 26 (previously 35) red balls. In addition to this change, the game’s third prize level received a five-fold increase from $10,000 to $50,000 for matching four of the first five numbers and the POWERBALL.

The man claimed his prize at Lottery Headquarters in Dover on November 6, 2015. He told Lottery officials that he hasn’t spoken to anyone about his win yet, but plans to give his grandson a nice Christmas with the winnings. “My life isn’t going to change dramatically, but I am extremely humbled to have won,” said the winner.
