ATLANTA – A Fantasy 5 jackpot prize is the icing on the cake for a lucky restaurant cashier in DeKalb County. Lamant Graham of Lithonia, who is expecting his first child this spring, matched all five numbers from the Jan. 29 Fantasy 5 drawing, winning the $942,117 jackpot prize.
Graham, 28, claimed his prize Feb. 10 at Georgia Lottery headquarters in Atlanta.
The only boy in a family of girls, Graham used his sisters’ birthdays as his lucky combination.
He purchased the ticket at Three Brothers Food Mart, 1544 Wellborn Road in Lithonia.
“I found out that I’d won while checking the numbers on my cellphone,” he said. “I didn’t want to get too excited.”
In disbelief, Graham decided to wait before claiming his prize.
“I kicked back and chilled first,” he explained. “I had to think about it. I’m happy to win.”
Winning numbers from the Jan. 29 Fantasy 5 drawing were: 6-13-21-25-26.
