Winner Claims Fantasy 5 Ticket Sold in San Jose Worth $170,000!


SACRAMENTO – We put Northern California on alert for not one, but two Fantasy 5 tickets sold in NorCal that successfully matched all five numbers in last Tuesday night’s Fantasy 5 draw. These tickets split the top prize of $341,060 to win $170,530 each! We now know who held at least one of them.

Majad Anvari has claimed the winning ticket that was sold in San Jose. It matched the numbers 14, 23, 24, 25, and 30.

Anvari bought his ticket at The Wine Rack, which is located at 5768 Santa Teresa Boulevard in San Jose (Santa Clara County). The other ticket was purchased at MD Liquor and Food located at 500 Mission Boulevard in Santa Rosa (Sonoma County). We are still waiting for that winner to claim.

The California Lottery reminds winners to sign the back of their tickets, keep tickets in a safe place and contact Lottery officials or visit their local Lottery District Office as soon as possible. Winners have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim prizes.

Fantasy 5 offers some of the best odds of any California Lottery game. A player wins the Fantasy 5 jackpot simply by matching five numbers out of a field of 39. Winning numbers are drawn every day. The top prize starts at $50,000 and increases daily until it is hit. Tickets are $1 and can be purchased from any of the more than 21,000 California Lottery retailers.
