LANSING, September 10, 2010 – Susan Fobar finally hit a big jackpot!
Fobar matched all five numbers on the September 4 Fantasy 5 drawing. Fobar’s prize of $207,980 is by far the largest she’s ever won. The Brownstown woman has been a regular Lottery player since it started playing most of the online games, including Mega Millions, Powerball, Classic Lotto 47, and raffles.
Fobar doesn’t have any plans for the money yet. She’s going to let it sit while she figures out a plan.
The winning easy-pick ticket was sold at CVS Pharmacy, 23800 West Rd., in Brownstown.
Over 94 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 2009, the contribution to schools was $724.5 million. Since its inception in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $15 billion to education in Michigan.
