The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, matched the winning numbers drawn in Friday’s Fantasy 5 drawing: 02-04-06-10-17. He bought his ticket at Schultz’s Party Store, located at 12965 Shann Road, in Wolverine.
“My day started like any other, I went to get my morning coffee and check my Lottery tickets,” said the player. “First, I checked my Mega Millions ticket and didn’t win anything. When I checked my Fantasy 5 ticket the scanner said to see the clerk. When we both realized I had won the jackpot, I told him that I wanted my prize in all singles!”
The player visited Lottery headquarters in Lansing on Monday to collect his big prize.
With his winnings, he plans to buy a few items for his home and save the remainder.
