Fantasy 5 players are on a blazing hot streak, winning 16 jackpots worth more than $2.3 million over the past six weeks.
Saturday’s drawing produced the most recent jackpot winner. One lucky ticket matched all five numbers drawn – 05 13 17 25 35 – to win a prize of $287,058. The winning ticket was sold at CJ’s Smokers Shop located at 37899 Mound Road in Sterling Heights.
All but two of the jackpots from this incredible run have been claimed. In addition to the most recent jackpot, a $159,835 top prize remains from the April 26 Fantasy 5 drawing. That winning ticket was sold at the Dearborn Amoco Service located at 22096 Michigan Avenue in Dearborn.
The lucky ticket holders should contact the Lottery’s Public Relations Division at (517) 373-1237 to set up an appointment to claim their prize. Tickets for Fantasy 5 and all other terminal-based draw games are valid for one year following the drawing date. Both prizes must be claimed at the Lottery headquarters in Lansing.
The estimated jackpot for tonight’s Fantasy 5 drawing stands at $105,000. Tickets may be purchased at any lottery retailer until 7:08 p.m. The daily drawings take place at 7:29 p.m.
