UNCLAIMED CASH WAITS FOR LUCKY LOTTERY PLAYER
$210,000 in prizes will be lost if winners do not come forward

Dover, DE -- A lucky Delaware Lottery player is sitting on a $200,000 POWERBALL® prize nearly one year after hitting it big, but their time to claim the cash is quickly running out. The winning ticket was purchased at the 7-Eleven located in New Castle at 1501 DuPont Hwy., for the November 24, 2007 drawing of last year. A $10,000 POWERBALL® prize also remains unclaimed from a November 10, 2007 drawing nearly one year after purchase at the Jack's Country Maid Deli located in Wilmington at 5605 Kirkwood Hwy. - and that ticketholder will have to act even more quickly.

"The Delaware Lottery enjoys handing out jackpots of all sizes, and it's especially nice to write out large checks to our players," said Wayne Lemons, Director, Delaware Lottery. "We'd like nothing more than to have the winner or winners of both these prizes step forward, but we can not hold the prizes indefinitely."

With a number of winners over the summer, as well as the annual DELAWARE RAFFLE approaching, the Lottery has been very busy this year.

The Delaware Lottery reminds players that prizes must be claimed within one year from the date of the drawing. Players are invited to check the official unclaimed prizes page of the Delaware Lottery web site to see whether they are holding a winner.

Since the start of operations in 1975, the Delaware Lottery has contributed more than $2.8 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®, HOT LOTTO®, MULTI-WIN LOTTO, PLAY 3, PLAY 4, and assorted Instant Games. Delaware Lottery game and promotional details are available at delottery.com, at licensed retailers, and from the Lottery's office in Dover.
