Waitress wins Fantasy 5 for $200,180!

Fantasy 5A 45-year old waitress from Owosso has decided to take a week off work. She can afford to; she won the Fantasy 5 drawing on August 6 for $200,180

The mother of four and her husband, who wish to remain anonymous, now have the opportunity to do something they have dreamed of for the past seven years. “Seven years ago we lost our house to foreclosure,” said the winner’s husband. “We moved into the place we live now because it was convenient, but we really want a house again,” said the lucky winner.

The player discovered she had won when her husband checked the numbers on his phone, and then held the phone and the ticket to her face and shouted “Look at this!” His next words to his winning wife were “Sign the ticket!”

“But I couldn’t sign the ticket,” she says, “because by then I was crying with happiness.”
