ATLANTA – Valentine’s Day arrived a few days early for Jessica McKinney of Thomasville, Georgia, after winning Wednesday’s Fantasy 5 top prize. Ms. McKinney matched all five winning numbers in the February 11th Fantasy 5 drawing and won $188,285 before taxes.
The winning numbers for Wednesday’s Fantasy 5 drawing were: 7-15-16-23-32. The lucky quik pik ticket was purchased at Quikstop, located at 1335 W Jackson Street in Thomasville.
On Wednesday evening, following the drawing, Ms. McKinney called the Georgia Lottery’s player information hotline to check the Fantasy 5 draw results. She was stunned to learn that she was a top prize winner.
“I started crying,” says Ms. McKinney. “I could not believe it.” A mother of three small children, Ms. McKinney says she and her husband plan on saving most of their winnings for their children’s future.
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 retailer incentive bonus. Quikstop will receive a $6,000 retailer incentive bonus.
Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $6 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.
