Michigan Lottery Online Pays Out $224,720 Jackpot
A man from Livingston County in Michigan has won an immense $224,720 Fantasy 5 Jackpot whilst playing the state's online lottery, a report reads. The 37-year-old player successfully matched five numbers on Friday, 9 November - 6, 7, 15, 22, 30 - and could barely finish eating his supper afterwards... Although the winner wishes to stay anonymous, he had a lot to say about this life-changing event:

'I buy Fantasy 5 tickets online pretty regularly," said the player, who chose to remain anonymous. "A lot of the time, I get emails telling me I've won a few bucks, but when I was at dinner with my wife, I got an email saying I'd won, but it didn't show an amount.'

He further adds:

'I looked at the game's jackpot, and once I saw it had reset to $100,000 I realized I could be the big winner. As soon as I confirmed I had won, I could barely finish eating!'

Fantasy 5 In Summary:

After claiming his big prize at the Michigan Lottery HQ in Lansing, the player still can't believe it's real, but knowing that all his debts are likely to be paid off is what keeps him very excited, since it represents a huge relief for him and his family.

The state's online lottery has pretty simple rules. Each Fantasy 5 game costs only $1 but for an additional $1 USD per play, contestants can include EZmatch to their ticket and earn a chance to win $500 instantly! However, every participant must select 5 numbers from 1 to 39 first - whoever makes a successful match can win a jackpot that starts at $100,000.

General Lottery Welfare:

Perhaps the most important fact about the state's lottery programme is that about 97% of every dollar spent on the tickets, is returned straight to the budget. These financial contributions are then added to the School Aid Fund, whilst the prizes and commissions are distributed to players, vendors and retailers, of course.

In 2017, the association has provided a record $924.1 million to Michigan public schools, but ever since it launched in 1972, the Lottery has contributed over $21 billion to support public education and various other useful agendas.

The site is more than equipped with online instant games, online draw games, as well as their in-store versions. There is also a nice selection of second chance raffles, but the most popular titles are currently Winter Keno, Fast Buck Basketball, Queen of Diamonds, Treetop Treasures, Fruity Cubes, Volcano and more… the list goes on and on.
