Thursday, July 10, 2014

ATLANTA – Robert Cooper, a lucky welder, has won $343,069 from matching all five winning numbers from the June 5 Fantasy 5 drawing. Cooper won his prize from receiving a free Fantasy 5 Quik Pik ticket from a previous drawing.

The Ider, Ala., resident received his free ticket at CITGO Fuel Center, 5646 Alabama Highway N.W. in Rome.

Winning numbers from the June 5 Fantasy 5 drawing were: 2-6-9-10-33.

The lucky winner decided to stop at the store and check his ticket.

“I thought they were joking with me,” he exclaimed.

Cooper and his wife, Debora, plan to pay bills off with the winnings.
