RETIRED STATE EMPLOYEE ENDS THE YEAR WITH $10,000 LOTTERY WIN
January 3, 2016
Myrai Johnson, a 79-year-old retired state employee from Wilmington, Delaware, has ended 2015 on a high note after winning $10,000 from Delaware Lottery’s KENO. She purchased the lucky ticket at James and Jesse’s Barber in Wilmington on December 23.

Myrai told Lottery officials that she is a regular Lottery player and this is her largest win to date. “I have won the Lottery before but nothing as large as this,” she said excitedly. “When I found out I won, I was in absolute shock—I had to run to the bathroom,” she laughed.

The first people she told about the win were her two granddaughters, who accompanied her to claim her prize. “I was so happy when Mom-Mom told me she won,” said one of Myrai’s granddaughters. “I don’t play the Lottery myself, so it’s very exciting when someone you know wins!”

Myrai said this win has already changed her life and she plans to use some of the money to pay her bills. She collected her $10,000 prize (less 25% federal tax) at Delaware Lottery headquarters in Dover on December 28, 2015.

Since the start of operations in 1975, the Delaware Lottery has contributed more than $4.5 billion to the state’s General Fund to help finance needed state services that benefit everyone in Delaware. The Lottery offers a variety of games: POWERBALL, MEGA MILLIONS, HOT LOTTO, MULTI-WIN LOTTO, LUCKY FOR LIFE, PLAY 3, PLAY 4, Keno, iGaming and assorted Instant Games, Video Lottery, Sports Lottery and Table Games. Delaware Lottery game and promotional details are available at delottery.com, at licensed locations, and from the Lottery's office in Dover.
