The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, won the jackpot by matching the five numbers drawn in Thursday’s Fantasy 5 drawing: 01-20-26-27-29. The player bought her winning ticket at the Sutton Market, located at 23165-23185 Lahser Road in Southfield.
The lucky player learned she was a jackpot winner Friday morning when she went to purchase a ticket for that evening’s Fantasy 5 drawing and checked her Thursday ticket. When the clerk told her she had won the jackpot, she was stunned.
“It’s hard to describe the feeling of winning the Lottery,” said the player. “I just felt completely numb and kept saying ‘Someone needs to pinch me, because this must be a dream!’”
With her winnings, the lucky player plans to pay off her bills, set aside a portion for retirement, and take a trip with her family.
