Michigan (STL.News) A Leelanau County man had the best birthday ever, after receiving a $360,037 jackpot winning Fantasy 5 ticket in a birthday card.

The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, matched the Fantasy 5 numbers in the May 20 drawing to win the big prize: 06-16-22-24-32.  The winning ticket was bought at Roy’s General Store, located at 963 Hammond Road East in Traverse City.

“I got the ticket as a birthday gift and it’s safe to say I don’t think it’ll ever be topped,” said the 40-year-old player.  “It’s felt like a dream ever since I won.”

The player visited Lottery headquarters to claim his big prize.  He plans to pay some bills, take a vacation, and then invest the remainder.
