Union carpenter wins $10,000 on scratch off bought at Upper Chichester Wawa

John G., a 39-year-old union carpenter from Upper Chichester, Pennsylvania, recently purchased a DREAMIN’ XXL Instant Game ticket while visiting Wawa #854 in Claymont. After scratching the ticket while filling up his gas tank, he could not believe what he had revealed – he had become the game’s latest $10,000 winner.

John G. said he typically purchases a single Instant Game ticket every time he receives a paycheck. “It’s my way of celebrating payday,” he said. When this particular ticket ended up being a big payday in itself, he said, “I almost fainted right there on the spot!”

John G. was happy to share the excitement of his $10,000 win with his wife. He has won smaller prizes in the past, but this is his biggest win to date.

This is the second $10,000 prize from the Instant Game DREAMIN’ XXL to be claimed so far this August. Three $10,000 prizes remain, along with one top prize of $250,000. That means there’s still plenty of DREAMIN’ XXL excitement ahead!


When asked what he was planning to do with his winnings, he said he will put the money toward paying down his mortgage.
