The largest Fantasy 5 jackpot of 2014 was $716,997 won on Jan. 23. On March 17, a Fantasy 5 player won $437,619, the game’s second-largest jackpot this year. Both winners were from Macomb County.
As the Fantasy 5 jackpot continues to grow, one question remains: Will the game’s recent hot streak continue?
With 30 jackpots won over 12 weeks, Fantasy 5 jackpot winners have collected more than $4 million in prizes. During the current streak, the largest jackpot won was $287,058 from the May 17 drawing. That prize has yet to be claimed.
In addition to the May 17 winner, the winning ticket holders from the April 26, June 2, 21 and 22 Fantasy 5 drawings have yet to claim those prizes. 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 are valid for one year from the drawing date. Prizes of more than $50,000 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.
