Let’s ‘Clap It Up’ for Northeast’s own Darmeisha! Back from a $500 Holiday Bonus Bingo win in December and a $500 DC4 win, just last week, Darmeisha is now a certified good-luck charm, as she welcomed a $5,000 on this week’s Bracket Bucks 2nd Chance drawing!

“Getting hip” to the 2nd Chance contest from a friend, Darmeisha had nearly 40 entries into last week’s Bracket Bucks contest, for #TeamDC5. “I’m just so happy and excited for this win,” Darmeisha said. Ms. Wheeler plans to buy a few things for her home, take her daughter on a spring break trip, save and of course, PLAY more with the DC Lottery!

Congrats to Darmeisha on her big win today and remember DC, keep your eyes on the DC Lottery—where LOTS OF PEOPLE WIN!

Its Been a GOOD Year


Well isn’t this a familiar face? Let us reintroduce Derrell Nathaniel, DC5 lover and IT Security worker. Mr. Nathaniel is back at winning, just 90 days after a sweet $25K win with DC5. This time, Derrell is taking home $125,637.50 from his favorite lucky game.

How did he do it, you ask? Derell has been playing his former military address, for more than one year, awaiting that lucky hit. And today was his day! Playing both the mid-day and evening game, at multiple stores, Mr. Nathaniel quadrupled his chances with this four-way hit. “It’s been a good year,” Derell said, reflecting over his two hefty wins this year.

“I’ll put most in the bank, and invest the rest in stocks,” he said, when asked what were his plans for the cash. And that sounds like a good idea to us. His winning tickets were purchased at, Capitol City Wine & Spirits, Chinatown Liquor and Rainbow Touch.

Congrats again to Derell on his big win today and remember DC, keep your eyes on the DC Lottery—where ITS FUN TO PLAY!
