Georgetown Woman Wins $182,100 Playing Multi-Win Lotto
The Top Prize Is The Second Largest In The History Of The Game
Dover, DE - April 11, 2014 – A 59-year-old woman from Georgetown, Del., who wished to remain anonymous, won a top prize of $182,100 from a MULTI-WIN LOTTO ticket she purchased at Liquor Plus in Georgetown on April 7, 2014, for that evening’s drawing. The $182,100 MULTI-WIN LOTTO top prize was the second largest top prize in the history of the MULTI-WIN LOTTO game. The last MULTI-WIN LOTTO top prize of $128,009 was won on October 30, 2013.
Additionally, the Delaware Lottery had a total of 3,987 winners who won prizes totaling more than $16,000 in the MULTI-WIN LOTTO drawing that took place on April 7.
At Delaware Lottery headquarters on Tuesday, the MULTI WIN LOTTO top prizewinner told Lottery officials that she used the Delaware Lottery’s “Quick Pick” option to select her numbers of 15, 19, 27, 30, 31 and 35 to win in a line.
The winner also said she purchased three tickets in total from Liquor Plus: one MULTI-WIN LOTTO and two PLAY 4® tickets. Her favorite games to play she said are “MULTI-WIN LOTTO, MEGA MILLIONS® and HOT LOTTO® with Sizzler®, but I like to play all the games when I can,” she said.
The woman said she learned of her big win the very next morning when she went to another Lottery retailer to purchase some Instant Game tickets.
“I put my ticket [MULTI-WIN LOTTO] under the Quick Scan at the clerk counter because I like to check the tickets myself,” she said.
After seeing that her numbers matched the winning numbers displayed on the screen, the woman said, “I was happy as a lark! I was standing there in shock and thought to myself, ‘I know I didn’t just see those numbers come up!’”
Overcome with joy, the woman went on to say, “I’ve never won anything like this in my life, but there’s a first time for everything,” she said.
Afterward, the woman said she handed her ticket over to the clerk at the liquor store counter to check the ticket one more time.
“I think the he [the clerk] was more excited that I won!” she said. “He kept saying, ‘She’s the one that won!’”
The fortunate woman recounted a previous time she had been lucky with the Delaware Lottery. “My husband, who is now deceased, liked to play the numbers 3-2-1, so years back I won $500 playing those numbers on a PLAY 3® ticket,” she said.
After receiving her $182,100 winnings, the woman said the first thing she would do with her prize winnings was to buy a new bed among other things.
“I have a tiny bed now and always wanted a king-size bed!” she said with excitement. “I may move out of my apartment and give my grandchildren some of the winnings. Also, my one granddaughter needs a new car,” she said.
The woman claimed her $182,100 MULTI-WIN LOTTO top prize on Tuesday, April 8, 2014 at Delaware Lottery headquarters in Dover.
