Another Person Strikes it Rich in Riverside County!


Fantasy 5 Winner in Perris Will Walk Away With $176,000 Top Prize

SACRAMENTO – The last time we checked there is no Eiffel Tower in Perris, California. But the lucky owner of a Fantasy 5 ticket now has plenty of cash to go see the real thing! That’s because the winner matched all five numbers during last night’s draw, and is suddenly the owner of the $175,604 top prize (which by the way, according to our math, comes out to roughly 130,000 Euros to spend in Paris, France!).

This still anonymous winner bought their ticket at S + K Liquor, which is located at 360 East Fourth Street in Perris (Riverside County). They matched all five winning numbers, which are 20, 31, 24, 1 and 38. So let the celebration begin – if in fact it hasn’t already gotten under way!

If you check your tickets and discover that you’ve won big, the California Lottery reminds you to sign the back of your tickets, keep them in a safe place and contact Lottery officials or visit your 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.

And be sure to participate in the California Lottery’s Fantasy 5 Bonus Bucks promotion. For every purchase of $5 or more of Fantasy 5 on a single ticket you will automatically receive a Fantasy 5 Bonus Bucks code. Enter the code at to participate in weekly draws for a chance to win cash prizes up to $10,000.

The mission of the California Lottery is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities. More than 96 cents of every dollar spent by our players goes back to local communities in the form of contributions to public schools and colleges, prizes and retail compensation. The California Lottery urges its customers to play responsibly and within their budgets. If you feel you have a gambling problem, or know someone who does, you can get help at 1-800-GAMBLER.
