A 70-year-old Fenton man, who wishes to remain anonymous, won $585,204 playing the Michigan Lottery. He matched the Fantasy 5 numbers on Saturday, Oct. 5 with the winning ticket. Locke’s Party Store is at 1228 N. LeRoy St.
This wasn’t the first time this Fenton man won money from the Michigan Lottery.
“Last fall, I won $5,000 playing Lucky For Life, $2,500 playing Lotto 47, and $1,000 on an instant game all in a few weeks,” he told the Michigan Lottery. “I’m hoping this is the beginning of another streak like that and the prizes keep getting bigger.”
His winning numbers for the Oct. 5 ticket were 10-11-12-13-23.
“When I first saw the numbers that were drawn, I figured the jackpot was going to roll again because the numbers were all pretty close together. When I looked at my ticket later, I knew right away I’d won.”
