LANSING, December 4, 2008 – Time is running out for a lucky Lottery player to claim $100,000. The unclaimed Fantasy 5 prize is set to expire on December 6, 2008.
The winning ticket was purchased at Henry’s Corner Store in Harrison. The winning numbers, drawn on December 6, 2007, were 02-18-24-27-31.
Because Lottery headquarters is closed on the actual expiration date, which is a Saturday, the prize must be claimed by 4 pm in Lansing on Monday, December 8. The lucky winner is urged to contact the Lottery’s Public Relations Division at (517)373-1237 to set up an appointment to claim the prize.
All Fantasy 5 prizes are valid for one year of the draw date. If the prize goes unclaimed, the money will be deposited into the state School Aid Fund.
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 2008, the contribution to schools was $740.7 million. Since its inception in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $15 billion to education in Michigan.
