GROUP OF 30 COWORKERS CLAIMS $100,000 POWERBALL® PRIZE

DOVER, DE -Thirty employees of the Silverside Carr Executive Center in Wilmington claimed a $100,000 POWERBALL® prize from the March 20 drawing at the Delaware Lottery Office in Dover this morning.

A woman from North Wilmington, spokesperson for the group, said the prize will be divided up among the 30 coworkers. The group received a check for $73,000, which represents their $100,000 prize minus $27,000 for federal tax. Each group member will receive a portion of the prize based on their contribution to the company's office pool.

The coworkers, who purchase tickets together for each POWERBALL® drawing, purchased their winning Quick Pick ticket the day of the drawing at Claymont News. "Our group has been playing POWERBALL® on a regular basis for about five years now," the spokesperson explained. "We've won in the past, but never the $100,000 prize. It's very exciting."

She learned they had won when she called the Player Information line. Currently, the winners are not sure what they will do with their portion of the prize; however, they do plan to continue playing POWERBALL® as a group for every drawing.
The POWERBALL® jackpot for Wednesday, March 27 has an estimated annuity value of $48 million. Tickets for POWERBALL® cost $1 and are available at all Delaware Lottery On-Line Retailers.

Since the start of operations in 1975, the Delaware Lottery has contributed more than $1.1 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®, LOTTO, Rolldown®, PLAY 3 and PLAY 4, and assorted Instant Games.
