Man Wins $283,000 on Fantasy 5 Using a Combination of Birthdays – on His Birthday!
It’s a pretty common strategy for California Lottery players to use birthdates as the numbers they pick. But have you ever heard of a player using birthdates on their birthday and then actually winning?! Well that’s exactly what happened to Robert Schreier. Schreier used a combination of birthdates from family and friends to score the Fantasy 5 top prize of $283,078.
Schreier purchased his Fantasy 5 tickets Friday afternoon before the draw. He said that when he got home that evening he went online to check his numbers, and when he realized he had won, he yelled so loud that he scared his cat. When we asked what he planned on doing with his winnings,Schreier also told us he wants to buy himself a new car and just invest the rest.
