A Pennsylvania man who won $25,000 from a scratch-off lottery ticket he bought in Delaware said he wasn't the first member of his family to score a jackpot.
The 27-year-old York Haven man told Delaware Lottery officials he decided to buy four scratch-off tickets from the Royal Farms store in Georgetown and one of them, a $25,000 CASHTASTIC ticket, was a $25,000 top prize winner.
"I couldn't believe it," the man said. "I scanned my ticket and it said to come to Lottery Headquarters. I was so shocked."
The man said his family has been lucky before -- he started playing lottery games two years ago after his stepfather won a $300,000 prize.
The winner said he is planning to put his prize into savings for his daughter.
