SACRAMENTO – Wayne Mazey has some favorite numbers. Luckily those numbers include 19, 23, 25, 28 and 36. That is because those were the winning numbers in the September 1st Fantasy 5 drawing. Those lucky numbers earned Mazey a top prize amount worth $393,627.

Mazey picked his winning numbers at 99 Ranch Market, which is located at 140 West Valley Boulevard in San Gabriel (Los Angeles County). 99 Ranch Market is also a winner, receiving a sales bonus of $1968 for selling the winning ticket.

Mazey says his numbers are just lucky and don’t really have any personal significance, such as birthdays or an anniversary. “I just mix the numbers around” Mazey said. The county worker says he doesn’t have any plans for the money yet, he is just going to wait and see what he wants to do.

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.
