“I play Fantasy 5 with the Double Play every day,” said McRath. “I was watching the news one night and saw the winning Fantasy 5 numbers come up on the screen. I recognized the numbers, but thought I’d only matched four. When I looked my ticket over and saw I’d matched all five, I couldn’t believe it! It was a great feeling.”
