A Saginaw County woman turned a $100 prize into a $105,000 prize playing the Michigan Lottery’s Fantasy 5 game.
Tracy Vandevenne, of Frankenmuth, matched the Fantasy 5 numbers in the Feb. 24 drawing to win the big prize: 04-07-08-32-35. She bought her winning ticket at the 7-Eleven, located at 120 West Genesee Street in Saginaw.
“I won $100 on an instant ticket, so I decided to use some of my winnings to purchase a Fantasy 5 ticket,” said Vandevenne. “I used the Lottery app scanner to check my ticket the next morning. My phone buzzed and a bunch of confetti came up on the screen with a message saying I won $105,000. I was in complete shock. I took a screenshot and sent it to my son to tell him the good news!”
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.
