Fantasies are becoming realities for players of the Michigan Lottery’s Fantasy 5 game. Fantasy 5 players are riding an incredible hot streak, winning 17 jackpots totaling more than $2.4 million in just seven weeks.
The current streak of jackpot winners began on April 7, when a lucky player hit a jackpot of $271,034. Since then, players have been hitting jackpots at a torrid pace, including five jackpots in-a-row from April 15-19.
The latest Fantasy 5 jackpot winner came Wednesday, when a Detroit woman matched all five numbers – 01-05-06-13-18 – to win $132,023. She bought her winning ticket at Gratiot Party Place located at 11901 Gratiot Avenue in Detroit.
All but one of the jackpots from the blazing hot streak have been claimed. The winning ticket holder from the April 26 Fantasy 5 drawing has yet to claim their prize. The ticket with the winning numbers – 02-14-17-24-28 – was bought at the Dearborn Amoco Service located at 22096 Michigan Avenue in Dearborn.
The lucky ticket holder 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 are valid for one year from the drawing date. The prize must be claimed at the Lottery headquarters in Lansing.
Each Fantasy 5 play is only $1. For an additional $1 per play, EZmatch may be added to a Fantasy 5 ticket, giving players a chance to win up to $500 instantly. Fantasy 5 players select five numbers from one to 39.
