How to Play
Fantasy 5 needs no introduction for routine Michigan Lottery players, but for those who do not play often, this could be your next favorite. Players will have to choose their best five numbers from one to 39 by their choice or the machine.
Some features are available to add to your ticket, such as the Double Play. This feature reuses the numbers you just played for an instant second drawing. The jackpot you will be playing for this time is a set amount of $110,000.
Another add-on to check out is EZmatch. This feature uses a special number at the time of the draw that you have to see if your ticket is paired with in order to win a prize. The prizes range up to the max of $500.
Odds, Price, and Prizes
Odds are going to vary when you play Fantasy 5, with prizes typically favored one in nine to score a prize. However, these odds are going to change slightly depending on if you add features or simply buy another ticket.
The EZ Match prize showcases the best odds to win a prize at one in five. Purchasing a second ticket is an excellent opportunity to increase your chances, but keep an eye on your budget to make sure you do not overspend.
Looking at the regular draw, it shows prizes of $1, $10, $100, and then whatever the current jackpot is at the time of purchasing a ticket. The Double Play features the same exact odds as the regular draw, but the prize amounts are doubled ($2, $20, $200). Remember, the jackpot prize is $110,000.
