A 51-year-old woman from Grandville has been using the same numbers to play the Lottery for 10 years. She’s no longer even sure why she chose those particular numbers. “I might have gotten them from a fortune cookie,” she said. Nevertheless, she always believed they would make her a winner, and earlier this month they did!
The lucky player, who chooses to remain anonymous, claimed her $105,000 Fantasy 5 jackpot on Valentine’s Day because as she said, “it’s a sweet day to win.”
What does she plan to do with her long-time-coming winnings? “I’d like to take a few day trips around the state when the weather gets nice,” she said with a smile.
The winning ticket was sold on February 5 at Walker St. Pharmacy located at 1181 Walker Ave. NW in Grand Rapids.
