Christmas Comes Early for Bay Area Lottery Player


Fantasy 5 Ticket is Worth Nearly $200,000

SACRAMENTO – Christmas came just a few days early for one lucky California Lottery player. That’s because last night, a ticket sold in Marin County matched all five Fantasy 5 numbers to win the top prize of $192,120!

The winning ticket successfully matched the numbers 17, 3, 38, 1 and 8. The lucky retailer who sold the winning ticket is Alcos Colonial Market, which is located at 212 Tamalpais Drive in Corte Madera. 

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.
