LANSING, April 15, 2008 – An anonymous man matched all five Fantasy 5 numbers on April 5 and won a $100,001 prize!
The Roseville man is a regular Lottery player who learned of his good fortune in the newspaper. He put the easy pick ticket on the fridge prior to claiming it at the Lottery’s Lansing office. He plans to pay bills and build a cabin up north with his prize money.
The lucky winning ticket was purchased at Gratiot Consumer Center, 28231 Gratiot, in Roseville.

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.
