After purchasing a lucky quick pick Fantasy 5 ticket, a San Ignacio Town resident is the winner of the 5,000 Fantasy Five jackpot. That man, Marion Avila, stopped at the Brad’s Gaming Company Ltd. in Belize City where his winnings were handed over by Fantasy Five’s Public Relations Officer, Karil Wallace.

According to Wallace, it was not until checking the numbers on Saturday, March 17, 2018 that they learnt that someone had won and where that ticket hailed from. Avila says that it is a practice of his to purchase quick pick tickets every Tuesday and Thursday and that it was a chance of luck. He felt shocked and lucky and says that he will use the money to pay for the education of his three children, to finish his home, and to hopefully save some.

The winning ticket had the numbers 24, 20, 13, 5, and 2 and free letter Y. After taxes, Avila took home two hundred ninety-two thousand, two hundred and fifty dollars. The Fantasy 5 jackpot restarts at $200,000.
