Detroit winner claims prize

LANSING, May 5, 2006 – A very lucky Detroit woman is $110,001 richer after she matched all five numbers in the April 28 Fantasy 5 drawing.

The lucky winner, who chose to remain anonymous, said she called the Lottery’s 1-800 number “over and over” to be sure she had all five of the numbers on her ticket.

Her numbers were selected from a Lottery “tip sheet” and she plans to use the money to pay off debts.

The lucky winning easy pick ticket was purchased at Michigan Liquor Express, 24428 Michigan Ave., in Dearborn.

Fantasy 5 is the Michigan Lottery’s game which replaced Michigan Roll Down.  Drawings for the game are held seven days a week.  Jackpots start at $100,000 and grow by approximately $5,000 daily.

All proceeds from the Lottery are contributed to the state School Aid Fund which supports kindergarten through 12th grade public education in Michigan.  In fiscal year 2005, the contribution was $667.6 million.
