How to Play Fantasy 5

While the recent jackpot prize was won in stores, Michigan Lottery players will need an account if they want to play their tickets online. Simply choose five numbers that range between one and 39.

You could opt for additional features such as Double Play, which could provide extra winning opportunities. Double Play will use the same numbers immediately again for the instant second drawing, which costs another dollar. The jackpot if you win this one is always set at $110,000 for matching all five numbers.

Another add-on to look into is called EZmatch, which also costs a dollar. There will be a number given to you at the time of the draw that you have to match. Prizes will vary here, as the max is $500.

Odds, Price, and Prizes for Fantasy 5

The odds for Fantasy 5 are one in nine to win something in a regular draw. The odds will slightly vary based on additional features and buying more tickets.

If you decide to purchase another ticket, it allows you a slight boost to potentially earn another prize. Tickets only cost a dollar, and so do the add-ons, so this could be easily managed.

EZ Match offers the best chance to win a prize as the odds are one in five. Buying a second ticket with the EZ Match add-on could be worth it.

The regular draw has prizes of $1, $10, $100, and the current jackpot value at the time of the draw. The Double Play has the same odds in comparison to the regular draw, but the prize amounts have been doubled ($2, $20, $200).

Below you can see the EZmatch prizes and odds:
