Metro-Detroit neighbors win six-figure lottery jackpot

 Metro-Detroit neighbors win six-figure lottery jackpot

A group of metro-Detroit neighbors celebrate after picking up their six-figure check from the Michigan Lottery office in Lansing.

A group of neighbors who have been playing the Lottery together for five years won a $110,000 Fantasy 5 jackpot from the Michigan Lottery!

The eight-person David K lottery club matched the Fantasy 5 numbers in the April 15 drawing to win the big prize: 10-16-18-25-39. They bought the winning ticket at the Marathon gas station, located at 6800 Highland Road in Waterford.

“We are all neighbors and have been playing the Lottery together for five years,” said the club’s representative. “We have a lottery club group chat, so every time I buy our tickets, I send a photo of the tickets in the group chat and keep everyone informed.

“I checked the Fantasy 5 ticket by scanning it on the Lottery app early one morning, and when $110,000 came up on the screen with confetti, it sure woke me right up! I took a screenshot and sent it in our group chat. Within minutes, my phone was going crazy with everyone responding saying they didn’t believe me.

New pole barn in the works

“Playing together as a club has been a lot of fun, and winning together is even better!”

The David K lottery club recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim their big prize. Each member received about $13,750 before tax withholdings. The club members plan to use their winnings to pay bills, complete home improvements, take a vacation, and build a pole barn.

Each Fantasy 5 play is only $1. For an additional $1 per play, EZmatch may be added to a Fantasy 5 ticket, giving players a chance to win up to $500 instantly. For an additional $1 per play, Double Play may be added to a Fantasy 5 ticket, giving players a second chance to win up to $110,000 in the nightly Double Play drawing. Players may win prizes in the regular nightly drawing, the Double Play drawing, or both. Fantasy 5 players select five numbers from one to 39. Players who match all five Fantasy 5 numbers drawn win a jackpot that starts at $100,000.

Fantasy 5 drawings are held seven days a week at 7:29 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at a retailer or online at MichiganLottery.com until 7:08 p.m. on the day of the drawing.
