A 49-year-old woman from Camden, Delaware, was surprised to learn that she scratched her way to the top prize playing the Delaware Lottery’s Instant Game, More Money. The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased three tickets—including the winning ticket—at Super Spirits in Camden, Delaware.
“I was at home like any other Saturday morning and scratched off the ticket,” said the woman. “When I realized I was a winner, I had my dad and sister double-check it to make sure I was reading the ticket right. Needless to say, it made my whole weekend!”
The winner told Lottery officials that the first people she told about the win were her dad, sisters and brother-in-law. “All of my family members were very happy and excited for me. They were also interested in where I purchased the ticket to see if they could get lucky at that retailer as well.”
The woman noted that this was her largest win to date and that she plans to use her winnings to purchase a new freezer for her dad—and possibly a car. “I don’t have any real plans besides sharing it and helping other people.”
The woman claimed her $20,000 prize at Lottery Headquarters in Dover on Monday, August 8.
