LANSING, September 22, 2008 – A Lake City man, who opted to remain anonymous, claimed his half of the July 8 Fantasy 5 prize valued at $93,540!
After thinking the ticket was worth $100, the regular Lottery player was “pretty happy” with his big win. He plans to pay off his truck with the prize money.
The lucky winning own-pick ticket was purchased at A & L Trading Post, 130 N. Morey Rd., in Lake City.
Fantasy 5 drawings are conducted seven days a week. Jackpots start at $100,000 and grow by approximately $5,000 daily.
Over 95 cents of every dollar spent on Lottery tickets is returned to the state in the form of contributions to the state School Aid Fund, prizes to players and commissions to retailers. 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.
