Bay County Man Wins $271,601 Fantasy 5 Jackpot from the Michigan Lottery

Winning Fantasy 5 ticketA call from a friend had a Bay County man running to his truck to find out if he was the lucky winner of a $271,601 Fantasy 5 jackpot from the Michigan Lottery.

The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, matched the Fantasy 5 numbers in the Sept. 7 drawing to win the big prize: 14-19-21-34-36. He bought his winning ticket at Larry’s Corner Lounge, located at 101 West Third Street in Pinconning. Pinconning is about 35 miles north of Saginaw.

“I got a call from my co-worker the day after the drawing asking me if I had bought a ticket at Larry’s,” said the player. “He told me a jackpot winning ticket had been bought at that store, so I went running to my truck to grab my ticket. I looked my ticket over, and I couldn’t believe I was holding the winner!”

The player visited Lottery headquarters recently to claim the big prize. With his winnings, he plans to pay bills and then save the remainder.
