We all fantasize about what we might do if we were to win the Lottery. There’s shock, excitement, screaming, or all of those reactions rolled into one. Marina Olague and her husband were yelling so loudly after their Fantasy 5 win they tell us a neighbor clear down the street heard them and came running over to see what was going on.
I’ll tell you what was going on, celebrating! The couple had purchased five tickets for Sunday night’s draw and one of them matched all five numbers to win $289,471!
Marina said her husband went to the Lottery’s website to check the numbers. When he started screaming about a win she kind of blew him off. “I didn’t believe him. He does this to me all the time,” explained Marina, further describing his history trying to fool her with Lottery-related pranks.
Once he finally convinced her that this time he wasn’t kidding, the place erupted. The couple said neighbors heard them from 10 houses away. “It was very exciting,” said Marina. “The whole house was jumping.”
Marina said they’re now going sit on the win for a while, hoping to plot out what to do with the money. One thing is for sure, they’re going address the loans on their cars. “We’re gonna pay those suckers off,” said Marina. That’s one more reason to celebrate.
