Colorado Lottery Prize Patrol Strikes Again -- Centennial man receives a $100,000 surprise.
DENVER -- While there is no doubt that FedEx employee Randy Deal of Centennial can be counted on to deliver the goods, he never thought he would be the one on the receiving end. But that was the case when the Colorado Lottery surprised him with a check for $100,000.
Deal won the prize when his name was chosen from more than 40,000 entries sent to the Lottery for the Deep Sea Riches second-chance drawing.
“My wife and I always thought this was the best chance of winning one of the top prizes,” said Deal. “We just spent a lot to remodel our basement. Now we can pay that off, and still have a little left over to put in savings. I think it’s going to take some time for this to sink in.”
Deal said he submitted about 40 entries into the drawing. He told Lottery officials his favorite game was the Scratch game Snow Bank, but has changed his mind -- now it’s Deep Sea Riches.
