Dover, DE -- The day following the September 21st MULTI-WIN LOTTO drawing, a 52-year-old woman, from Chesapeake City, Md., claimed her jackpot prize worth $70,008 at the Delaware Lottery Office in Dover. The winner received a check for $52,506 which represents her prize minus federal withholding taxes.

The woman, who has chosen to remain anonymous, and her husband purchased the winning ticket at C&C Country Maid located at University Plaza in Newark. As a MULTI-WIN LOTTO player since the game's introduction in late January, she was surprised to learn of her win after she checked the winning numbers in the newspaper. She then called her husband who did not believe that they had, in fact, won the jackpot. Still in shock, the winner told Lottery Officials they have no plans yet for their prize money.

Since the start of operations in 1975, the Delaware Lottery has contributed more than $2.1 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®, MULTI-WIN LOTTO, PLAY 3, PLAY 4, and assorted Instant Games.
