Jefferson County Man Wins 2012 Ford Mustang GT from PA Lottery Instant Game
Middletown –Douglas Giles of Reynoldsville, Jefferson County, today claimed the 2012 Ford Mustang GT he won by playing the Pennsylvania Lottery’s Mustang instant game.
Thomas Miller, area manager of Lottery’s Clearfield Office, today presented the Mustang to Giles at Murrays Ford-Lincoln-Mercury, 3007 Blinker Parkway, DuBois, Clearfield County.
“I’ve always wanted a Mustang,” said Giles, explaining it was an easy decision to choose the car instead of the $60,000 cash prize option.
Giles, who works at a local powder metal plant, said he was very pleased with the assistance the dealership provided in helping him pick out the car, including its color, Kona Blue.
Giles bought the Mustang Lottery ticket at Backstreet Distributor in Reynoldsville.
Mustang, $5 per ticket, offers 10 top prizes of $100,000 and 10 Ford Mustang GT prize packages valued at $60,000 each. As of Jan. 9, one top cash prize and three Ford Mustang GT prize packages remained to be claimed. The odds of winning a top prize in the Mustang Lottery game are 1-in-720,000, while the overall odds of winning any prize in the game are 1-in-4.52.
In the 2010-11 fiscal year, in addition to awarding nearly $9.2 million in prizes to Jefferson County winners, the Pennsylvania Lottery contributed nearly $5.3 million to programs serving Jefferson County’s older residents.
