A Detroit resident is now $454,448 wealthier after playing one of his favorite games. The winner, who chose to remain anonymous, purchased his Fantasy 5 winning jackpot ticket at a CVS pharmacy located at 19900 VanDyke Road in Detroit.
The winner was able to match all five of his numbers. The winning numbers for that drawing were:
Current Estimated Jackpot: $228,000
Next Drawing: Daily at 7:29 p.m.
Purchasing Options: Online and In-Store
Ticket Cost: $1.00
To begin, you create your own ticket by choosing five numbers that range between 1 to 39. To make the game more interesting, adding an additional $1 allows you to have those same numbers entered again for the Double Play feature, which is to be used immediately in a second draw. The second drawing has available prizes that range up to $110,000.
But wait! There’s more! You can add another feature to the game for $1. This extra feature allows you to have the EZmatch for your chance to win $500 instantly. All you have to do is have your EZmatch numbers match up with the Fantasy 5 numbers to win the amount next to that number.
Once you have decided how much involvement your ticket will have, you then simply wait for the drawing at the designated time. To check your results, you can find it on your local news television station, Michigan Lottery’s website, or on the Michigan Lottery app and receive updates.
Fantasy 5 costs $1 to play, but it could cost you at least $3 a ticket with the additional features. The overall odds of winning just a single prize for the Fantasy 5 game’s regular draw are 1 in 9.
The odds of matching two of the five numbers is 1 in 10. However, the jackpot odds, matching all five numbers, are 1 in 575,757.
The prize ranges are below:
Looking at the Double Play option, the odds are the same. The only difference here is the prize amounts: $2, $20, $200, and $110,000.
With the EZmatch feature, the odds of winning a single prize are 1 in 5. The prize amounts for this range from $2to $500. The odds for them range from 1 in 10 to 1 in 84,000.
