ATLANTA - Angela Hurst says she has "won a lot" playing the Georgia Lottery's Fantasy 5 game, but nothing prepared her for the thrill she experienced after winning the game's top prize. Ms. Hurst correctly matched all five numbers for the May 20 drawing and won $328,047.
The winning numbers for the May 20 Fantasy 5 drawing were: 2-12-18-24-31.
"I was watching the drawing on television, and after the fourth number was drawn, I squeezed my daughter's arm in excitement," said Ms. Hurst. "When the fifth number was drawn, I jumped up and started running around the house crying," she said.
As a lottery-funded HOPE grant recipient and grandmother, whose grandchildren have benefited from the lottery-funded, high quality Prekindergarten Program, Ms. Hurst was already a Georgia Lottery winner.
She plans on donating a portion of her winnings and "buying a new Lexus GX 470."
The winning ticket was purchased at Spectrum #0096 in Macon. Spectrum #0096 is located at 6205 Zebulon Road.
Georgia Lottery retailers selling winning Fantasy 5 tickets receive a retailer incentive bonus of $2,000. The retailer incentive bonus increases by $2,000 each time Fantasy 5 rolls. If more than one winning top prize ticket is sold, the retailers selling the top prize winning tickets will share the bonus. Spectrum #0096 will receive a retailer incentive bonus of $8,000.
Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $7.4 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs. These include Georgia’s HOPE scholarship program; a statewide, voluntary pre-kindergarten program for four-year-olds; and a wide range of technological and capital upgrades for the state’s schools, technical institutes, colleges, universities and public libraries.
