The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, was one of two players to match the Fantasy 5 numbers drawn Tuesday: 15-17-28-32-36. He bought his winning ticket at the Edenville Market, located at 6650 M30 in Edenville. Each winner will receive $133,892.
“I have bought a multi-draw Fantasy 5 ticket each Sunday and Thursday for as long as I can remember,” said the player. “Sometimes I pick important dates and play those numbers, other times I just pick numbers that feel lucky to me.”
The player visited Lottery headquarters Thursday to claim his prize. With his winnings, the player plans to pay bills and supplement his retirement income.
“As long as the bills are paid and people are eating, we’ll play the Lottery,” the player said.
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.
