A player from Manchester, who wishes to remain anonymous, carried a winning Fantasy 5 ticket around for several days without knowing it. “I usually only check my tickets about once a week,” he said.
He was at work one day when a friend told him that he should check his ticket because there had been a winner at the store where he purchased his ticket. “So I checked it then, and found out I was a winner,” the lucky player stated.
The winning ticket was sold at Total Petro 4241 located at 15100 S. Wright Rd. in Eagle.
