“I bought a Fantasy 5 ticket on my birthday hoping to win big, but you never expect to,” said the player.  “I went to the store the next day and got a printout of the winning numbers.  When I saw I’d matched all five, I couldn’t believe I had actually won, especially since it was on my birthday!”

The lucky player recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize.  With his winnings, he plans to share with family.
