A lucky Grand Blanc woman was stunned when she realized she had won a Fantasy 5 jackpot from the Michigan Lottery.
Laura Nolkemper matched all five winning numbers – 10-21-23-26-28 – to split Friday’s $100,000 Fantasy 5 jackpot with another lucky Lottery player. She bought her ticket at the Speedway gas station, located at 3155 Miller Road in Flint.
“I checked the numbers on my iPad and couldn’t even speak,” Nolkemper said today while collecting her big prize. “I told my husband I had won and he thought I was talking about the Daily 4. When he realized I meant the Fantasy 5, he jumped out of his chair!”
With her winnings, Nolkemper plans to make some home improvements, and save the rest.
The other winning Fantasy 5 ticket from Friday’s drawing was bought at the Five Star Liquor Store, located at 7951 Chase Road in Dearborn.
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. Players who match all five Fantasy 5 numbers drawn win a jackpot guaranteed to start at $100,000. Fantasy 5 drawings are held seven days a week at 7:29 p.m.
