Brooklyn couple claims prize

LANSING, December 6, 2006 – A very lucky longtime player claimed $379,439 after matching all five numbers in the November 20 Fantasy 5 drawing.

The winner, who chose to remain anonymous, said he checked his tickets for the week online and recognized “his” numbers on the screen.  The player always uses the same numbers based on his birth date, wedding date and the number of years the couple has been married.

The winner and his wife plan to use the money to buy a new car and make home improvements.

The winning ticket was purchased at Vic’s Food Store, 101 Austin Rd., in Napoleon.

Fantasy 5 drawings are conducted 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 2006, the contribution was $688 million.
