$10,000 WIN IN THE DELAWARE LOTTERY’S QUARTER MILLION LARGE INSTANT GAME GIVES AN EXTRA BOOST TO ONE
December 17, 2016

A retired Delaware resident has upgraded his plans for holiday gift buying after winning $10,000 in the Delaware Lottery’s Instant Game, Quarter Million Large. The man purchased his winning ticket at Express Food Market on Pulaski Highway in Bear.

“I don’t have any system for how often I buy tickets or which tickets I buy,” said the man, who wished to remain anonymous. “I don’t typically buy the $25 Instant Games, but for some reason the mood struck me to buy two of them. Now here I am, with an extra $10,000 to contribute to my Christmas present funds!”

The man, proudly identifying himself as “79 years young,” told Lottery officials he has been playing the Lottery for approximately four years. Although he has won smaller prizes on Instant Games before, this $10,000 win is by far his largest.

“I was shocked when I took the ticket home, scratched it off and discovered how much I had won,” said the man. “It’s a great feeling and I wish other Lottery players good luck, too.”

The man claimed his prize at Lottery Headquarters in Dover on December 9.
