It’s hard to believe but a 70 year old Delaware man has scooped nearly $70,000 on the Multi-Win Lotto after previously having won $8,000 from a New Jersey Lottery multi-win game.
The man who has recently moved to the state purchased the winning ticket at Fox Run Shopping Center in Bea on Friday. He used the quick pick option to match all six numbers.
Coming forward to claim the $69,032 jackpot, $52,464 after required tax withholdings the lucky man has some ideas on how he will spend his good forune.
"I was checking the tickets online on Saturday morning and thought I was hallucinating," the man said. "I went to the store to double check. I even slept with the ticket in my hand."
"Do something nice for my fiancee and myself. This will give us a buffer with the move," he said.
