Here we go again another great Michigan Lottery winner in our neck of the woods down the road in Ingham county. Stories like this give me the itch to run to the store and try my luck.

The game he won on is the game I play most often because the odds of winning are much lower than Mega-Millions and Powerball.

Odds Of Winning Fantasy 5

The odds of getting 5 out 5 in Fantasy 5 are 1: 575,757 and the jackpot starts at 100,000 which I would be very happy with.  I have had 4 out 5 numbers a few times which pays about a hundred dollars.

The 56-year-old Ingham County man explained to the told Michigan Lottery officials that he plays Fantasy 5 online and in-store.

I play online with the Michigan Lottery app too because it's easy and you can save your favorite numbers and play when you want.  Once in a while, I will try 10 bucks in quick pick if I happen to be in a store that sells tickets.

Good luck with your next lottery purchase.
