LANSING, February 25, 2008 – “It is unreal!” One lucky man is $566,701 richer after matching all five numbers in the Feb. 14 Fantasy 5 drawing!

The anonymous winner said he plays the Lottery “all the time” and he plans to use his newfound riches to pay off his home, car and bills and maybe go to Las Vegas next year for Christmas.

The easy pick winner was purchased at Meijer #36, 5500 Clyde Park Ave., in Wyoming.
