Delaware man Duane Katterman wins big in Maryland Lottery twice in two months


“I couldn’t believe I won the first time around,” Duane Ketterman told lottery officials. “So when I saw this one, I was just dumbfounded.”

MILLSBORO, Delaware — For most people, winning the lottery is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. But a Delaware man was lucky enough to win the lottery twice, in just two months.

Powerline Technician Duane Ketterman regularly crosses the state line to work in Maryland and buys lottery tickets during his visits, according to a Maryland Lottery press release.

Ketterman’s purchases paid off in early July, when he won $18,000 in one of the Maryland Lottery’s Racetrax games.

Last weekend, on a family trip to Queen Anne County, Maryland, Ketterman won again, claiming $30,785 in another Racetrax match.

“I couldn’t believe I won the first time around,” Ketterman told lottery officials as he claimed his prize in Baltimore on Tuesday, according to the statement. “So when I saw this one, I was just dumbfounded.”

The 43-year-old Millsboro, Delaware resident chose his winning numbers at random, the statement said. He discovered his victory when his family stopped for breakfast.

“I checked the ticket on my lottery app and, after a moment to figure it out, showed my wife,” Ketterman said, according to the statement. “She was as surprised as I was. More, even.”

Ketterman has no immediate plan for his windfall, hoping instead to put it aside for a rainy day.
