DOVER, Del.- The Delaware Lottery on Monday afternoon identified Selbyville Goose Creek, located at 38452 DuPont Blvd. in Selbyville, as the retailer that sold the winning ticket for a $121.6 million Powerball jackpot prize in the Dec. 17 drawing.

The winning numbers in Saturday’s drawing were 1, 8, 16, 40, and 48 with a Powerball of 10.

According to Delaware Lottery officials, the Powerball jackpot winner will have the option to choose a 20-year annuity or the cash value of his or her share of the jackpot. If the annuity option is chosen, the winner will receive the $121.6 million jackpot annuity, which will be paid over 20 years. If the winner chooses the cash option for their share of the jackpot he or she will receive a lump sum payment of $72.1 million. The winner in Delaware has not yet come forward.

“For one lucky winner in Delaware, this holiday season marks the beginning of the start of their life as a multi-millionaire,” said Delaware Lottery Director Vernon Kirk.  “This is an incredible life-changing event, and the Delaware Lottery encourages the winner to take the time they need to make the decisions regarding prize claim options, and perhaps consult with a tax accountant or an attorney.”

Delaware Lottery officials said this drawing represents the second-highest Delaware jackpot winner on a single ticket. The highest was in 2004, when a winner of the $214.7 million jackpot took the cash option of $116.9 million. Delaware also had a winner in two other higher advertised jackpots, however more than one winning ticket was sold in these drawings, and the jackpot was split with other states. These took place in 2001, with a Delaware winner claiming one of four winning tickets on a $295 million annuity value, and in 2009, with a Delaware winner claiming one of two winning tickets on a $174.4 million annuity value.

In May of 2013, one of three $50 million Powerball jackpot winning tickets was also sold in Delaware at Super G supermarket, located at Lighthouse Plaza Boulevard in Rehoboth Beach, and claimed the cash value of $10,377,750. Delaware Lottery officials said that since Powerball first began in 1992, the state has had a total of nine jackpot winners, which will increase to 10 when the winner from Saturday’s drawing comes forward.

Along with the grand-prize winner, two players matched all five white numbers drawn to win $1 million. Those tickets were sold in California and New York, however, neither player played the Power Play option which would have increased their winnings to $2 million. Overall, there were 676,912 winners in the drawing who won at least $4 each, Delaware Lottery officials said. 

Powerball jackpots start at $40 million and roll until the jackpot is won. Overall odds of winning any Powerball prize are 1 in 24.9, and the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292 million.
