Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2012 will be forever sweet for this player from Linden, that is the day he purchased his ticket, the drawing was held, and he claimed his half of a $332,040 jackpot playing Fantasy 5.
Two lucky Michigan Lottery players split the jackpot, giving each of them $166,020 for matching five Fantasy 5 numbers. Numbers for the February 14, 2012 drawing were 03 – 16 – 23 – 34 – 37. The other player must claim their portion of the prize before February 14, 2013 at 4pm, as the ticket will expire one year from the date of the drawing.
The winning tickets were sold at Speedway #8753, located at 1466 E. Bristol Rd. in Burton and at Larry’s Family Foods, located at 120 E. State Highway M35 in Gwinn.
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 2011, the contribution to schools was over $727.3 million. Since its inception in 1972, the Lottery has contributed over $16 billion to education in Michigan.
