Delaware (DE) Lottery Results and Winning Numbers

The Delaware Lottery was created by the General Assembly and signed into law by Gov. Sherman W. Tribbit on May 31, 1974. The first weekly draw games began ticket sales in October 1975, and the first instant game, Diamond Instant Dollars, was introduced in February 1976.

The Delaware Lottery offered limited sports betting markets for the NFL at casinos and retailers throughout the state starting in 1992 through a partial federal exemption. One month after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down PASPA, Delaware sports betting expanded. Today, the menu includes wagering on all major sports except those involving Delaware college teams.

Lottery players have four different in-state draw games such as Play 3, Play 4, Multi-Win Lotto, and Keno. Keno has drawings every few minutes throughout the day. The Delaware Lottery also participates in multi-state draw games Lotto America, Mega Millions, Powerball, and Lucky for Life. The Delaware Lottery sponsors three retail casinos, which offer over 6,000 video lottery terminals.

Since its inception, the Lottery has contributed over $6.0 billion in proceeds to the state’s General Fund.

Delaware Scratch-Off Games

Scratch-offs, also known as instant games, from the Delaware Lottery each have a specific number of tickets produced that are sold throughout the state. While they have lower jackpots than draw games, the odds of winning a prize are much higher. Instant games range in price from $1 to $30, with top prizes of $500 up to $300,000. The odds will vary depending on the game, but the best odds are always on higher-priced tickets.

Cash Party is one of the most popular instant games from the Delaware Lottery. The $20 scratcher has winning odds of 1 in 2.95 and a top prize of $100,000.

Stacks of Cash is a favorite $10 scratcher with decent overall odds of 1 in 3.36 and a $40,000 top prize. Only a certain number of prizes are available for each instant game, so players need to check which prizes remain before making a purchase.
