Roscommon County Player Won Over $321,000 Playing Michigan Fantasy 5 Lottery

A lucky resident of Roscommon County, Michigan, is celebrating a windfall thanks to a smart strategy and a touch of winter weather! The 69-year-old player, who prefers to remain anonymous, recently walked away with a cool $321,542+ prize after winning the January 16th Fantasy 5 jackpot.

Faced with a snowy day, the player opted to purchase their ticket online at MichiganLottery.com. While browsing the site, they discovered a helpful tool – the “hot/cold numbers” feature. This feature displays which numbers have been drawn less frequently (“cold”) and more frequently (“hot”) in recent drawings.

Intrigued, the player decided to incorporate some of the “hot” numbers into their usual selection. This strategic swap proved to be a golden move! Their ticket, featuring the numbers 05-09-13-16-24, perfectly matched the winning Fantasy 5 draw.

According to the Michigan Lottery officials, the winner said “The day after the drawing, I saw an email from the Michigan Lottery regarding a prize,” the winner shared. He logged in to his account, fully expecting a smaller win, and was absolutely stunned to discover he’d claimed the entire Fantasy 5 jackpot!

With his newfound wealth, the winner has exciting plans in store. He intends to use the money to remodel his home and share some of the windfall with his grandchildren.
