LANSING, December 4, 2007 – A very lucky man has claimed his half of the Nov. 22 Fantasy 5 prize.

The Kentwood man cashed in a $72,000 ticket after playing the Lottery for over 20 years.

In fiscal year 2007, the contribution to schools was $748.9 million. Since its inception in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $14.3 billion to education in Michigan.
