Winning Fantasy 5 Ticket Sold in Upland Worth More than $200,000


SACRAMENTO – A lucky California Lottery player that purchased a ticket in Upland for last night’s Fantasy 5 draw woke up a much wealthier person this morning. That’s because their ticket matched all five numbers to claim the $204,320 jackpot.

The numbers on the winning ticket are 11, 6, 16, 15 and 31. The ticket was purchased at the Circle K store located at 681 East Foothill Boulevard in Upland.

The California Lottery reminds the winner to sign the back of the ticket, keep the ticket 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.

The California Lottery is celebrating 25 years of enhancing education and supporting local communities. More than 95 cents of every Lottery dollar is returned to the community in the form of contributions to education, prizes and retail commissions. The Lottery contributes at least 34 cents of every dollar that players spend on Lottery products to public education and returns more than 50 percent of sales to players in the form of prizes. Since the Lottery’s inception in 1985, Lottery players have contributed nearly $22 billion to California schools out of total sales of more than $59 billion. Retailers benefit too, earning $3.8 billion in compensation since 1985.
