Fantasy 5 tickets and all other terminal-based tickets are valid one year from the draw date. If Michigan Lottery prizes go unclaimed, they go to the state School Aid Fund. The Lottery contributed $734.3 million to the School Aid Fund in fiscal year 2013. That works out to about $465 for each of the 1.58 million pupils in the state’s kindergarten-through-12th grade system.
The list of large unclaimed prizes may be found on the Lottery’s website, www.michiganlottery.com, under the “Games” tab on the home page.
