ATLANTA – Alice Robinson of Decatur is the first Georgia Lottery player to win a Fantasy 5 top prize with a free ticket won by matching two of five numbers. Mrs. Robinson won $64,360 when her free ticket matched all five winning numbers in the Fantasy 5 drawing on April 12.
With the recent relaunch of Fantasy 5, players matching two of five numbers can win a free Fantasy 5 Quik Pik ticket for the next scheduled drawing.
