Roscommon County Resident Strikes Gold with Fantasy 5: A $321K Triumph

In a stroke of luck, a dedicated Michigan Lottery enthusiast harnessed the power of the hot/cold numbers feature on, leading to a substantial $321,542 Fantasy 5 jackpot win.

Choosing to stay under the radar, the 69-year-old from Roscommon County emerged victorious in the January 16 draw, hitting all five numbers: 05-09-13-16-24. Opting for convenience amidst snowy weather, the winner purchased his ticket online, tweaking his regular picks with a few recommended ‘hot’ numbers from the lottery’s website.

The surprise of winning was magnified the following day when an email from the Michigan Lottery prompted him to check his account, revealing the jackpot win. With the windfall, the winner is eyeing a home remodel and plans to spread the joy, sharing part of his fortune with his grandchildren.

At just $1 per play, Fantasy 5 offers players a shot at a starting jackpot of $100,000, with draws held nightly at 7:29 p.m. Additional features like EZmatch and Double Play can be added for another $1 each, offering instant wins up to $500 and a second chance at up to $110,000, respectively. Participants select five numbers from 1 to 39, with tickets available online or at retailers until 7:08 p.m. on draw days.
