The Streak: Fantasy 5 Players Win More Than $8.8 Million in Jackpot Prizes

Fantasy 5 with EZMatchThe blazing hot streak that began in early April for Fantasy 5 players has come to an end, but not before making the dreams of many Michigan Lottery players come true!

The streak began on April 7 and ended Saturday, when no one won the $274,920 jackpot. The last Fantasy 5 jackpot won was on Oct. 4 when one lucky ticket matched all five winning numbers – 16-20-24-27-30 – to win a $225,192 jackpot. The winning ticket was bought at the Meijer gas station, located at 1703 Haggerty Highway in Commerce Township in Oakland County.

The Fantasy 5 jackpot has been won at least once per week during the streak, with more than two jackpot wins each week, on average. In total, 57 jackpots totaling more than $8.8 million were won. On Aug. 29, three lucky players split a $731,607 jackpot, the largest amount won during the streak and so far this year for the Fantasy 5 game.

The Fantasy 5 jackpot winners came from across the state, including a Menominee County woman who won $105,000 in the game’s June 11 drawing. The streak winners also included a Pennsylvania man who won $144,707 on April 30 with a ticket bought in Sterling Heights.

The winning ticket holders from the April 26, July 28, Aug. 3 and Oct. 4 Fantasy 5 drawings have yet to claim those prizes. Those winning tickets total more than $500,000 in jackpot prizes.
