Big Change for Winner Claiming Fantasy 5 Ticket Sold in Ventura County!


SACRAMENTO – The thrill has only intensified for the person who claimed a Fantasy 5 ticket sold in Oxnard that matched all five numbers in Tuesday night’s draw. Jasmine Ortiz was happy enough thinking that she had won $411. “We were planning to go to an Angels game and Disneyland,” said Ortiz.

Hold on! The actual prize amount for this win was $411,398! “I’m ten times happier,” said Ortiz about how her feelings amplified once she figured things out. Now, instead of viewing her win as “extra spending money,” Ortiz told us she plans on slowing things way down and is hoping to choose wisely.  “It can go fast. We have to shop around.”

The winning ticket was sold at the 7-Eleven, which is located at 1501 West 5th Street in Oxnard. It successfully matched the numbers 35, 31, 20, 16, and 34.

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.
