A 48-year-old Millsboro woman claims the $1 million Powerball win in a mid-May drawing.
The woman, who wished to remain anonymous, bought the winning Quick Pick ticket at Royal Farms on Route 24 in Millsboro for the May 16 drawing, Delaware Lottery said.
Delaware Lottery says she matched all five white ball numbers (08-12-26-39-42) and won the million-dollar prize before taxes.
LOTTO WINNER: $1 million Powerball ticket sold in Delaware, left unclaimed days later
Delaware Lottery says the winner agreed to an interview, but was unable to be reached for comment during the coronavirus pandemic.
The winner claimed her prize at Lottery Headquarters in Dover on May 22, Delaware Lottery said.
Delaware Lottery says this is the first million-dollar Powerball claim in the First State for 2020, with Delaware having paid out just under $2 million in winnings so far this year.
Delaware Lottery’s website shows the last time someone won the million-dollar Powerball was in March 2019.
The odds of getting five white numbers is 1 in 11,688,053.5200, according to the Delaware Lottery website.
Powerball ticket sales drastically fell since the coronavirus pandemic started, but are now rebounding in the First State, according to Lotto Report data.
