A lucky customer has thousands of new reasons to smile after winning $105,000 on a Fantasy 5 ticket purchased at the Forward Shell convenience store in Standish.
The customer, who has not yet been identified, purchased the ticket Feb. 20 at the Forward Shell located at 201 S. Main St.
The prize was the fifth-largest won from a store-purchased Fantasy 5 ticket this year, according to the Michigan Lottery Web site. The third-largest prize also belongs to a Forward Convenience customer, as a Gladwin Shell customer struck it big for over $155,000 at the end of January.
The state site tracks winners of $600 or more, and so far this year Forward customers have won more than a quarter million dollars in large prizes.
In 2019, Forward customers took home over $8.4 million playing Michigan Lottery and Lotto.
