A Wayne County man immediately felt a sense of relief after checking his Fantasy 5 ticket on Tuesday morning and realizing he had won the game’s $100,000 jackpot.
Doug Teachout, of Allen Park,
matched the five winning Fantasy 5 numbers drawn on Monday – 04-11-30-32-37 – to win $100,000 from the Michigan Lottery. He bought his winning ticket at the CVS pharmacy, located at 11125 Allen Road in Southgate.
“My wife asked me to go to the store to buy some salsa, but when I got there she called to say she found some at the house and I could come home,” explained Teachout. “I didn’t want the trip to be a waste, so I turned in a winning Fantasy 5 ticket and used that money to buy my lucky ticket.”
Teachout picked his winning Fantasy 5 numbers using the Lottery’s Lucky Number Generator that can be found at http://www.michiganlottery.com.
“I had never used the Lucky Number Generator before, but I sure have used it since,” Teachout said. “I used it for my Mega Millions ticket for tonight’s drawing.”
With his winnings, Teachout plans to pay down some debt he has accumulated after helping some family members in need. He also plans to purchase his wife a new Ford car.
