DELAWARE LOTTERY'S NEW $100,000 PARLAY CARD
PROVES POPULAR WITH BETTORS
Delaware Park PLAYER misses $100,000 Jackpot by one Game on Monday Night
Dover, DE -Since its debut at Delaware's racetrack casinos three
weeks ago, the Delaware Lottery's $100,000 Parlay Cards have quickly become
a favorite among sports bettors. Last week, the $100,000 jackpot was nearly
awarded to a single player who missed by just one game when the Arizona
Cardinals lost to the San Francisco 49ers in Monday Night Football.
For a $5 wager, the $100,000 Parlay Card requires players to select 15
NFL games correctly against the point spread. Last week, one customer
at Delaware Park selected the first 14 football games correctly and needed
the favored Cardinals to beat the 49ers by more than 4 points. The 49ers
beat the Cardinals 24-9.
"The State has been pleased with the popularity and excitement created
by the $100,000 Parlay Card and we look forward to adding additional games
to the sports lottery wagering menu in the future," said Delaware
Acting Finance Secretary Tom Cook.
The $100,000 Parlay Card is distributed on Thursdays with the other weekly
cards at Delaware's three racetrack casinos: Delaware Park, Dover Downs
and Harrington Raceway. Because of NFL games on Thursday and Saturday,
this week's $100,000 Parlay Card must be played by kickoff of the Cowboys-Saints
game on Saturday at 8:20 p.m.
The Delaware Lottery also offers the following Parlay Cards each week:
Half-Point, Teaser, Super Teaser, Delaware Favorites, Monday Night and
