One Delaware man put off checking his lottery ticket until his son kept asking. After checking his ticket, the 55-year old Delaware resident found out he had won $1 million.
Two days after the drawing, the man contacted the Delaware Lottery hotline and almost lost his breath in excitement. The Delaware winner matched the first 5 numbers, but failed to correctly guess the elusive Power Ball.
The man told lottery officials he had bought 2 Powerball tickets every week, and was excited that he had finally won. The man is happy he listened to his son, who kept pestering him to check his numbers.
Delaware allows lottery winners to remain anonymous if they choose.
Powerball is on tonight at 11:00pm EST. Download the free Shoutz app to watch the drawing live on your phone.
