The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, matched the Fantasy 5 numbers in the Sept. 16 drawing to win the big prize: 01-02-21-23-37. He bought his winning ticket at the CVS pharmacy, located at 19900 VanDyke Road in Detroit.
“I play the Daily 3 and Daily 4 regularly, and play Fantasy 5, too,” said the player. “I saw the drawing results on channel 4 and I couldn’t believe I’d hit the jackpot!”
The player visited Lottery headquarters to claim his big prize. He plans to pay some bills and then invest the remainder.
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. For an additional $1 per play, Double Play may be added to a Fantasy 5 ticket, giving players a second chance to win up to $110,000 in the nightly Double Play drawing. Fantasy 5 players select five numbers from one to 39. Players who match all five Fantasy 5 numbers drawn win a jackpot that starts at $100,000. Fantasy 5 drawings are held seven days a week at 7:29 p.m.
