LOTTERY WINNERS IN 2004---2.8 MILLION "REWARDS"
DOVER, DE -- With the number of
winning lottery players for the year 2004 approaching three
million, officials of the Delaware Lottery declared that this
year was "very rewarding" for residents of the state.
Figures cited by the Delaware
Lottery indicate that there were a total of 2,831,032 winning
tickets sold to Lottery players in 2004 as of the end of October,
and that the number of millionaire prize winners created since
the Lottery's inception now stands at 54. That number includes
the 33 new millionaires added with the $214.7 million POWERBALL®
jackpot drawing on Saturday, October 9th. That single winning
ticket was claimed by a group of employees who work for a
printing company in Seaford, Delaware. Each of the ticket
holders received over $2.6 million in cash after federal withholding
taxes. That payout was the sixth largest POWERBALL® jackpot
in the game's history.
