Lucky for Life

After 20 years of playing the same lottery numbers, Delaware man wins $25,000 a year for life

September 15, 2019, 7:43 pm ET

Ever since he won $500 in the lottery 20 years ago, one 65-year-old New Castle, Delaware, man has been playing the same numbers over and over, hoping they'd pay off again. 

On Sept. 9, they finally did, winning him $25,000 per year for life in the Lucky for Life drawing. 

The man, who wished to remain anonymous, purchased the ticket at Dave's Liquors in New Castle, the state lottery office said. He matched all five numbers. 

"I thought I was dreaming," the man said when he learned that he had won. "I was one away from the big one (matching 5 numbers and the Lucky Ball), but that's okay. This is still such a great win!"
