April 13 was lucky for a 55-year-old Delaware man, who won $1 million in the latest Powerball drawing. "My son kept telling me I need to check my tickets and I kept putting it off," the unnamed winner told lottery officials. Unlike Pennsylvania and New Jersey, Delaware lets winners remain anonymous. But on Monday night, two days after the drawing, "I called the Delaware Lottery 800 number and lost my breath when I found out the news!" he said. Every week for five years, he has bought six lottery tickets, including two for Powerball, and liked to say that someday he would win. He matched the first five numbers -- 10, 12, 31, 56 and 57, but not the Powerball of 33. No one matched them all, so the jackpot rose for Friday's drawing to $80 million for the annuity, $56.1 million for the cash.
