LANSING, May 9, 2007 – A very lucky Sterling Heights man struck it rich when he matched all five numbers in the May 3 Fantasy 5 drawing.
The anonymous winner, who plays the Lottery regularly, said he plans to use some prize money for home improvements.
He checked his tickets on the Lottery’s Web site the day after the drawing and had to double check to be sure he’d won.
The winning easy pick ticket was purchased at 15 & Mound Deli, 35030 Mound Rd., in Sterling Heights.
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.
