MARYLAND MAN'S LUCK STRIKES TWICE - WIN $10,000 PLAYING POWERBALL
March 5, 2016
Luck has struck twice for a 61-year-old biologist from Maryland, who won $10,000 playing a POWERBALL Quick Pick in Delaware. He recalled winning the same size prize in Delaware in 2009. The lucky player bought his winning ticket at 301 Plaza in Middletown, Delaware, for a drawing that took place in September 2015.

The married man, who wished to remain anonymous, has been playing the Delaware Lottery for about 10 years, typically purchasing tickets on his way home from work.

“I normally buy Lottery tickets on Fridays and then will scan them at the store the next Friday,” the man explained. “When I scanned my ticket at 301 Plaza back in September, I didn’t believe that I won. I thought I won $1,000 at first so I had the store clerk scan it again to confirm. It was a nice surprise when the clerk told me that I’d really won $10,000.”

The first person the man told about the win was his wife. “She was pretty surprised when I told her I won $10,000 for the second time,” he said.

The winner told Lottery Officials that he and his wife found out about the winning ticket in September but decided to wait to cash the ticket due to tax reasons. “We’ve been keeping the ticket in a safe all this time, which was definitely a hard thing to do,” the man said.

The man, who said he will continue to play the Delaware Lottery, claimed his $10,000 prize (less 25% federal tax) at Delaware Lottery Headquarters in Dover with his wife on February 26, 2016. The couple said they plan to put the winnings into their bank account.

“We’re very happy about this win,” the man added. “It’s a little bit to pay for a big surprise.”
