LANSING, July 11, 2008 – An anonymous woman didn’t believe her good luck when she matched all five numbers in the June 10 Fantasy 5 drawing! She won $115,001!

This is the largest win to date for the retired woman who has been a regular Lottery player since 1980. She plans to use her own-pick winnings on bills and a trip to Disney World.
