Del-One First to Launch Prize-Linked Savings in Delaware (May 2017)
Delawareans who want to save money will have access to new rewards. Gov. John Carney signed a bill into law on May 2, allowing financial institutions to offer cash prizes to savers who make regular deposits into their accounts. Del-One will launch a prize-linked savings program throughout its 10 branches across the state. Savers will start out with a small deposit into a savings account; each time they add to it, their chances to win one of many cash prizes increases. With each deposit, account holders will be entered into the pool to win - likening it to buying a ticket for a raffle. As the number of deposits increases, so do the chances of winning. Del-One's prize-linked savings program will benefit Delaware residents, as all prizes will be awarded within the state of Delaware.
