An Oakland County woman is house-hunting after winning a $100,000 Fantasy 5 jackpot prize.
Megan Griffin, of Leonard, matched the Fantasy 5 numbers in the Feb. 5 drawing to win the big prize: 09-13-23-26-28. She bought her winning ticket at Lakeville Market and Liquor, located at 503 Lakeville Road in Leonard. Leonard is about 15 miles north of Rochester Hills.
“I love the Fantasy 5 game and I play it often,” said Griffin. “I was scanning several tickets at the store and a message came up to file a claim on one of my Fantasy 5 tickets, so I knew I had to have won a big prize.
“I scanned the ticket on the Lottery app and confetti immediately came up on the screen with a $100,000 message. I tried to stay calm since people were around, but I was so excited!”
Griffin, 37, recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize. She plans to use her winnings towards a down payment on a new home.
