LANSING, March 1, 2007 – A very lucky Battle Creek man struck it rich when he matched all five Fantasy 5 numbers in the Feb. 26 drawing.  The man claimed his $100,000 prize at Lottery Central today.

The winner, who opted to remain anonymous, said his heart was in his throat after learning of his good fortune.  He has big plans for his prize money.  He’s going to remodel his house, purchase a boat and a four wheeler, and “get everything” he and his family wants.
